Inglenook 2009 CASK Cabernet Sauvignon
Rutherford, California

The 1941 vintage of this Cabernet Sauvignon received a perfect score of 100 points from Wine Spectator in 2000. Between those two dates, the historic Inglenook estate has had its share of ups and downs. Now fully restored by film director Francis Ford Coppola, Inglenook is once again making premium wines. Their 2009 CASK Cabernet Sauvignon is a thick, inky-colored wine. In the mouth, it displays rich black fruit flavors with a hint of licorice and clove.

Rating: 15/20
