1882 was the first vintage produced by Inglenook founder Gustave Niebaum. That same year, Niebaum dug a small cave into the Mayacamas foothills on the back property of the estate in his quest for optimal barrel aging conditions. This wine pays tribute to Captain Niebaum, whose spirit of innovation and exploration continues to live on at Inglenook.
Winemaker Notes... The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 offers splendid aromas of blueberry and cassis with highlights of anise, fine herbs and red cherry. Finely grained tannins enhance a complex, yet polished structure that finishes fresh and vibrant, with a mysterious hint of mocha.
