Vintage Notes
Vintage 2014 marks Niebaum Estate’s third release of 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon, inspired
by the innovative mind of Inglenook’s Founder, Gustave Niebaum. The vintage of 1882
was the first produced at Inglenook, that same year, Niebaum dug a small cave on the back
property of the estate in the foothills of the Mayacamas mountains. There wine experiments
were conducted to learn about aging and temperature ideals, today Inglenook continues
the legacy of innovation to know rather than to wonder. This wine is an expressive
blend, primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, that highlights the estate blocks that remain after
Inglenook’s highly selective blending process.

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

The 2014 is bigger, denser and heavier concentration than previous vintages of this wine.1882 Cabernet Sauvignon, opens intensely with an alluring nose featuring notes of cassis, sandalwood, cigar box, black currants, spice and vanilla. To retain the aromatic quality of the varietals, 1882 is aged in 1 to 2-year-old oak, making wood less influential on the wine. On the palate there is a rush of tannin and big bold start of lush black fruits that flow easily over the structure. Generous and long, the flavors are well defined, elevated by a pluck of natural acidity. The wine finishes fresh with foresty floral notes and a hint of

wood and herbs.
