The 1882 pays tribute to Gustave Niebaum’s first vintage. This wonderful Cabernet is loaded with red and black cherry fruit, hints of vanilla and spice, all set on a firm, dense structure. This is an excellent pick for the cellar but despite being so young, it shows pretty well now. Winemaker’s notes: "Having reduced yields in 2015 resulted in highly focused wines and made 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon an exemplary reflection of the vintage. Sweet, savory scents of cassis, forest floor, wild blackberry, cedar, and vanilla flow seamlessly into a consistent flavor impression on the palate. This wine evokes a true sensation of balance between freshness, oak integration, fruit concentration and modest alcohol. The luxurious mouthfeel and tannin structure offer the added assurance of extended cellar potential. The 2015 growing season at Inglenook began early, staying 14 to 21 days ahead of average from bud-break through harvest. Variable weather during flowering in May, and limited precipitation for the third consecutive year, led to relatively low yields. The dry, warm weather during the second week of September ensured optimal ripening of fruit designated for the 1882 blend. Cabernet Sauvignon from Chateau Block S1 was the first lot to reach maturity on September 3rd. The final block was harvested on September 22nd from the Cohn Vineyard, Red Barn block."
