Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and boisterous in feel, with good energy and terrific balance for the year. Sweet floral notes, blood orange and spice add shades of nuance to a core of dark red berry fruit. More than anything else, though, I am very pleasantly surprised by the wine's freshness and overall energy.
With an elongated frame of great structure and elegance, this wine shows bright red fruit and moderate grip within a backbone of acidity and freshness. Chocolate-truffle richness is complemented by clove, cedar and dried herb, with a lasting touch of vanilla.
Elegant, with a core of red currant, damson plum and dark cherry fruit flavors carried by a fine-grained, cedar-tinged spine, ending with light incense and mineral hints. Drink now through 2029. 7,750 cases made.
