1882 was the first vintage produced by Inglenook founder Gustave Niebaum. This wine pays tribute to Captain Niebaum, whose spirit of innovation and exploration continues to live on at Inglenook.
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.
