I've just sold my last bottles of this beautiful wine but hoping to have more in soon; please contact me for details
The Rutherford AVA (American Viticultural Area) is renowned for its excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. 1882 was the first vintage produced by Gustave Niebaum on the Rutherford-based Inglenook estate that has been owned by Francis Ford Coppola for the last 40 years. In the same year Niebaum dug a small cave, pictured on the bottle, to understand better the ideal temperature for barrel ageing.
This is ideal food wine, though lovely on its own; match with beef (the rarer the better), lamb, turkey, goose and game; also a good match for mushrooms, hard cheeses and mild blue cheeses
"Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 is round and consistent with a velvety palate and a sense of “completeness” from the well-developed linear tannins. Highly aromatic and immediately expressive, you’ll find an alluring fragrance of plums, currants, dried cherries, cocoa, and violets followed by smooth flavors of red fruits with a hint of almond. The wine’s complexity is made even more intriguing as the wine finishes with the subtle sweetness of white chocolate.
If you choose to enjoy this vintage in its youth, we recommend decanting for 1 hour before serving, otherwise our 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to evolve and drink best in 5 to 10 years."
91 Points Vinous, Antonio Galloni Oct 2015
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 shows just how compelling this vintage is... Black cherries, plums, menthol, lavender and licorice flow across the palate in a dark, sumptuous wine endowed with real depth and nuance. Fleshy and supple, but with plenty of supporting acidity and vintage 2013 energy, the 1882 is a terrific introduction to the vintage. This is a very serious wine."
Cabernet Sauvignon fans need look no further than this; Cabernet Sauvignon at its best, from a great Napa Valley vintage. Classic blackcurrant, pencil shavings, leather, chocolate and more. Firm tannins as expected from a young Cab Sauv so this will evolve but is drinking fabulously now. This is a wine for grown-ups.
