The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon stands out for being virtually equal to the Rubicon at a fraction of the price. While moderately less complex, it delivers waves of black cherries without any of the vintage's characteristic coarseness. Instead, it's medium to full-bodied, supple-creamy in feel and long, with a fine dusting of a cocoa powder making an appearance on the finish.

Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that is sure to impress even the most discerning of wine connoisseurs. This wine is produced by one of the most renowned wineries in the Napa Valley, Inglenook Winery, which has a rich history dating back to the late 1800s.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape is known for producing full-bodied, complex wines with rich tannins and a long finish. Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception, with its deep ruby color and aromas of blackberry, cassis, and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and rich, with flavors of black cherry, plum, and dark chocolate. The tannins are firm but well-integrated, providing structure and balance to the wine.

Inglenook Winery has a long and storied history, dating back to 1879 when it was founded by Gustave Niebaum. Niebaum was a Finnish sea captain who fell in love with the Napa Valley and decided to plant vineyards and start a winery. Over the years, Inglenook has been owned by several different families and has undergone many changes, but it has always remained committed to producing high-quality wines.

Today, Inglenook Winery is owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola, who purchased the property in 1975. Coppola has invested heavily in the winery, restoring the historic chateau and replanting the vineyards with the best possible grape varieties. The result is a range of wines that are consistently excellent, including the Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine is best enjoyed with a hearty meal, such as a steak or roast beef. It pairs well with rich, savory flavors and can stand up to bold spices and sauces. However, it is also delicious on its own, sipped slowly and savored over conversation with friends.

In conclusion, Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that is sure to impress. With its rich history, complex flavors, and impeccable quality, it is a wine that is worth seeking out. Whether enjoyed with a meal or on its own, it is sure to be a memorable experience.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is a beauty of classicism and balance. Dense purple in color, with notes of crème de cassis, blackberry, cedar wood and forest floor, the wine is full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and pure, with moderate tannins and the potential for 20-25 years of upside.
