Rich, deep cassis and dark berry fruit, with some warm, gravelly minerality and a bit of baker’s chocolate on the nose. Soft and enveloping in the mouth. Long and balanced. A nice treat, since the last Inglenook Cab I had was the 77, which I had in the early 80s.

Not as complete as Rubicon, but complex and age-worthy in its own right

A Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. On the nose, red and black fruits with pleasant aromatic spices. The palate shows ripe cherry, strawberry and bkackberry flavors, subtle spices, some cacao and oak. Good balance, generous acidity, rich tannins and some smokiness noted on the long finish. Should show well for a decade.

I’m in ♥️ — with this wine! Doesn’t hurt that it’s 7 years old. Deliciously smooth. Wonderful.

Intense red color, lots of yumminess but bold, maybe with good chocolate

Wedding vintage, and it’s getting better with age! Still plenty of tannins.

This was delicious. Very drinkable with a nice filet mignon. Would definitely purchase again. It has aged beautifully.
