  • About this winery

    Founded by a successful Finnish sea Captain, Gustave Niebaum, in the 1880’s, Inglenook Estate in Rutherford California was once the most highly regarded of the earliest, great Napa Valley estate wineries. Over the years the estate passed through the hands of Niebaum’s descendants. Eventually the family started to sell off plots of the historic homestead. Even the proud name was put on the market in 1964 and sold to a corporation as merely a brand name. But in 1975, Francis Ford Coppola...

  • Tasting notes

    Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 is round and consistent with a velvety palate and a sense of “completeness” from the well-developed linear tannins. Highly aromatic and immediately expressive, you’ll find an alluring fragrance of plums, currants, dried cherries, cocoa, and violets followed by smooth flavors of red fruits with a hint of almond. The wine’s complexity is made even more intriguing as the wine finishes with the subtle sweetness of white chocolate. If you choose to enjoy this vintage in its youth, we recommend decanting for 1 hour before serving, otherwise our 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to evolve and drink best in 5 to 10 years.

  • Viticultural notes

    Although it was one of the driest growing seasons on record, 2013 was a stellar vintage. Despite the lack of precipitation, the vines were optimized by the ideal conditions of the previous year. The crop was unusually large, requiring a thinning out of fruit on multiple occasions. But these efforts paid off. By late summer, it was apparent our Cabernet was going to be of very high quality. The resulting fruit exhibited tremendous concentration that was perfectly balanced and highly fragrant.

  • Winemaking notes

    Over the last few years, we’ve refined our Cabernet Sauvignon program, using smaller boxes for picking and a new destemmer that is gentler on the fruit. Likewise, during the fermentation process, we evaluate individual blocks of fruit daily to determine which will benefit from pump overs. These methods have greatly enhanced the quality of our Cabernet Sauvignon, which is why this wine is a pure varietal representation. Unlike Rubicon, which is aged exclusively in French oak, we age our 1882 Cabernet in a combination of French and American oak for 18 months, using only a small percentage of new wood.

    Antonio Galloni

    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 shows just how compelling this vintage is, even at the entry-level. Black cherries, plums, menthol, lavender and licorice flow across the palate in a dark, sumptuous wine endowed with real depth and nuance. Fleshy...
