AG 90 WA (89-91) Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "Inglenook's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask presents a distinctly Old World profile. Sweet tobacco, cedar, savory herbs, plums and black cherries are some of the nuances that take shape in the glass. This pretty, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Readers should expect a lithe, feminine wine built on aromatics, nuance and understatement."
According to Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask emerges with scents of grilled herbs, cedar, red fruit, crushed rocks and smoke. The 2011 possesses lovely balance in the tense, wiry style of the vintage. There is plenty of potential here. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023."
According to Wine Spectator - "A scaled-down version, with complex, savory aromatics of dried currant, herb, licorice and crushed rock, ending with dry, chewy, gritty tannins that should reward short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2022."
Tasting Notes - "Subtle and round on the palate, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask offers fragrant notes of boysenberries, cherries, black currant and leather. Flavor intensity increases on the mid-palate with beautiful impressions of red fruits, spices, and coffee. This vintage bestows a supple texture with soft tannins and smooth, even transitions, giving it a particularly elegant style." 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot. 14.2% ABV.
