Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Niebaum-Coppola Estate Cask Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a shade of deep, dark purple and aromas of crushed red cherries, violets, and crème brûlée. Solid in character, yet supple on the palate, there is a deep, lasting cherry flavor with notes of currant, cassis, and sweet spices which develop on the finish. Enjoy the 2001 Cask Cabernet now while firm and fruity or cellar it for 5-10 years after which this wine will exude even more complexity and texture.
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.
