Winemaker's Notes:

The 2000 Estate Cask Cabernet has a brilliant deep purple hue with broad aromas of violets, crushed red cherries, and luscious, smoky maple syrup. Expansive flavors of ripe currants and plums highlight the supple palate, with rich notes of butterscotch, roasted vanilla and clove lingering on the finish. Enjoy the 2000 Cask Cabernet now for its pure ripe fruit or hold it for 5-10 years to watch it evolve.
My Notes:

About Inglenook:

In 1879, Finnish explorer and adventurer Gustave Niebaum searched the Napa Valley with the goal of establishing a wine estate to rival the finest chateau of France. For decades his wines won acclaim and remain some of the most admired in American wine history's classic period. By the mid-1960's, his property was divided, and estate-wine production ceased.

A decade later, Francis Ford Coppola purchased 1,500 acres of this historic property and revived Captain Niebaum's fine winemaking tradition. In 1995, Niebaum-Coppola acquired the remainder of the property and restored the Inglenook Estate to its original dimensions.
