Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the Cab Francs out there, intricately structured and rich in terroir character. It's lighter in body than a Cab Sauvignon, with cherry, mocha, carmel, vanilla, dusty Oriental spice and anise flavors that unfold in waves. Totally addictive and elegant."
-Wine Enthusiast

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.
