Founded in 1879 by Gustave
Niebaum, Inglenook remains
the crown jewel of the Napa
Valley under the stewardship
of the Coppola family.
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.

Vintage Notes

A winter with average rainfall, following four years of drought, provided ample soil moisture to kick off the 2016 growing season. Early spring was warm, triggering rapid, healthy canopy growth. Average late-spring temperatures and limited rainfall reduced the risk of frost during mid-May bloom, ensuring average yields. June closed with a heat spell, slowing vine canopy growth at the ideal time. The harvest for 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 took place under optimum conditions from September 12th through October 10th.

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 offers splendid aromas of blueberry and cassis with highlights of anise, savory fines herbes, and red cherry. Finely grained tannins enhance a complex, yet polished structure that finishes fresh and vibrant, with a mysterious hint of mocha.
