When in 1975 Francis Coppola went in search of a summer home to escape the hustle of the film industry, somewhere to enjoy some downtime with his family and make a little wine, he did not expect to become part of one of Napa’s greatest stories. The property he had stumbled upon that day and that left him transfixed was Inglenook Estate, one of the oldest properties in Napa and steeped in history.
1882 was the first vintage produced by Gustave Niebaum on the estate that would become one of the most renowned wineries in the New World – Inglenook. In the same year, Niebaum dug a small cave in the foothills of the Mayacamas to experiment and better understand temperature ideals for barrel aging. Niebaum’s vision was legendary and his inquisitive search for perfection pioneered many initiatives of the modern-day Napa Valley. Today, Inglenook lies in the heart of the famous Rutherford Bench, offering an unparalleled wealth of quality fruit, richness and minerality from this unique terroir. 1882, made exclusively from estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, has been created to honor Gustave
Well structured with excellent volume and fine dry tannins, our 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a solid core of dark fruits including blackberries, plums and black cherry, while aromatic notes of dark chocolate, tobacco leaves, smoke, vanilla, toasted oak, and subtle hints of violets add complexity and intrigue.
