Winery Tasting Notes: “Our 2013 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is a voluminous wine with upfront sweetness and fine, powdery tannins that develop intensity. Highly aromatic and immediately expressive, the palate reflects the nose with fragrant nuances of red and black fruits that include raspberries, cherries, blueberries, plums and blackberries, all enlivened by exotic spices, notes of tobacco, and a touch of dark chocolate. This is a big wine, one that demonstrates great texture, a freshness brought about by balanced natural acidity, and a long, rapturous finish.”
Blend: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot

Maturity:“It will continue to evolve over the next 10-20 years,” says the winery, and we believe it, but no one will wait that long to open this bottle.
Pairings:This wine, from film director Francis Ford Coppola’s renown estate, should be matched with a special menu. . .you sure don’t want to roll this out on burger night! Beef tenderloin tip or a filet would work nicely.
