About Inglenook Estate 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Francis Coppola rechristened his Niebaum-Coppola Estate in Rutherford with the original moniker of Inglenook in 2011, after purchasing the remaining part of the original property, which included the Inglenook Chateau and approximately 90 acres of vineyards. This estate had such a long and storied history growing some of Napa Valley's best wine grapes in the heart of the Rutherford Bench area over the decades that it seemed like the appropriate thing to do.

2013 was a stellar vintage. The dry, warm weather during September resulted in optimal conditions for fruit ripening. Modest vineyard yields resulted in wines that capture Inglenook’s signature elegance, while remaining round and generous on the palate. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot aged 18 months in 100% French oak 50% new.

James Suckling scored this 93 saying "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and minerals. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Linear and crisp. Drink or hold."

Wine & Spirits scored this 95 saying "This is the wine formerly known as Cask. In 2013, it benefited from the viticultural work Philippe Bascaules and his team undertook to help the vines ripen their fruit more efficiently. Presented as a selection of the best lots that remain in the cellar after the blending of Rubicon, it ages in a combination of French (90 percent) and American oak, half of it new. It’s a remarkably gracious 2013, elegant and bright, with crunchy cool fruit that feels supercharged by the Rutherford tannins, a gravelly growl of energy. Those dark tannins shade the brightness of the fruit, even as the fruit adds tension and verticality to their richness. If you collect Napa Valley cabernet, this is a wine to cellar, especially at the price."

and Vinous also scored this 95 and said "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is exquisitely layered and nuanced, yet also captures plenty of the vintage's intensity and pure power. Inky dark fruit, licorice, dark spices, menthol and new leather are all laced together in a super attractive, mid-weight wine loaded with nuance and personality. With time in the glass, the 2013 blossoms nicely and acquires more savory, cedar, tobacco and underbrush notes."
