    Crafted under the expertise of winemaker Philippe Bascaules, the 2018 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the legacy of Inglenook Estate Winery. This vintage, a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot, and 0.5% Petit Verdot, showcases the finesse and balance that define the wines of this renowned Napa Valley estate.

    The wine presents an opaque ruby red color, inviting the eye with its depth and intensity. On the nose, it opens with a rich array of aromas, including ripe cassis, succulent blackberry, and nuances of espresso and cedar. These elements combine to create an aromatic profile that is both sophisticated and inviting.

    On the palate, the 2018 Inglenook Cabernet is characterized by a powerful yet focused and well-balanced structure. Silky tannins and ample freshness contribute to its vibrant profile. The wine exhibits flavors of juicy blueberry and black cherry, complemented by a hint of wild game. The influence of oak aging adds a layer of spice and contributes to the wine’s polished tannins, allowing them to expand and grip gracefully. Additional notes of cherry, tobacco, and a subtle hint of eucalyptus add complexity to the tasting experience.

    The wine’s mouthfeel is both medium to full-bodied and silky, offering a concentrated style on the palate. Flavors of blackcurrants, leafy tobacco, chocolate, and damp earth-like aromas blend harmoniously, revealing the purity and freshness of the vintage. The finish is lengthy and polished, with an intriguing crescendo of flavors, including chocolate, hazelnut, and hints of black truffles. This rich, expansive profile is balanced by a firm framework that adds form and interest to the wine.

    Critically acclaimed, the 2018 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon has garnered impressive scores: 94 points from Wine Enthusiast, 90 points from Wine Advocate, 93 points from Jeb Dunnuck, and a remarkable 95 points from James Suckling. These accolades reflect the wine’s balanced full-bodied frame, juicy fruit character, and the plush, polished finish that is a hallmark of Inglenook’s Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The Inglenook wine price is a reflection of the quality and craftsmanship that go into each bottle. This vintage is not just a drink but a journey through the rich terroir of the Inglenook estate, offering a wine experience that is both luxurious and memorable. It is recommended to try this exquisite wine after 2022 to fully appreciate its layered fruit, round, creamy tannins, and long, flavorful finish. The 2018 Inglenook Cabernet is indeed a wine of charm, energy, finesse, and a joy to drink.

    Showing balance within a full-bodied frame, this wine is juicy in blueberry, black cherry and a hint of wild game. Oak adds spice and length, giving the plush, polished tannins room to expand and grip as a finishing touch of coffee bean builds.

    A solid example of Napa Valley Cab, Inglenook's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon features notes of cherry, tobacco and cassis, along with a hint of eucalyptus. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, it's medium to full-bodied, silky and focused, with decent length on the finish.

    A darker, meatier wine than the Rubicon release, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lots of blackcurrants, leafy tobacco, chocolate, and damp earth-like aromas to go with a medium to full-bodied, mouth-filling, concentrated style on the palate. It shows the vintage’s purity as well as its freshness, yet brings a rich, expansive vibe that's a joy to drink. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades

    Full-bodied with lots of layered fruit and round, creamy tannins. The palate shows lovely ripe-berry character with chocolate and hazelnut and a long, flavorful finish. Hints of black truffles. Plenty going on here with a firm framework that gives the wine form and interest. Try it after 2022.
