Highlights

  • Grapes from Inglenook’s Creek Vineyard are a key component of our Rubicon wine
  • Our 14-acre vineyard of alluvial soils produces Cabernet Sauvignon with density and uplifting silkiness
  • Made exclusively from the historic Gustave Niebaum Heritage Selection
  • This wine showcases the unique expression of Inglenook’s specific Rutherford Bench terroir

This rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking is one of only 60 bottles that will ever be made. Think of it as a bit of Napa Valley history in your cellar and celebrated in a glass with friends and family. Cabernet Sauvignon from Ingelenook’s Creek Vineyard is the heart of your Premiere Napa Valley wine. Creek Vineyard is located in the northern boundaries of Inglenook’s organically farmed estate. The soil is a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial sediments providing perfect drainage for the old vines of their Heritage Selection. This lot is aged separately for 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels, medium toasted. This wine has fragrant notes of fresh blackberry, blueberry, violet and vanilla. It is soft and balanced, with flavors of black fruit, wet rock, rose and cinnamon and a long finish driven by beautiful acidity.

Philippe Bascaules

Winemaker, Inglenook

Winemaker, Philippe Bascaules

Personally chosen by Francis Ford Coppola, renowned French winemaker Philippe Bascaules came to Napa from Bordeaux in 2011 to become General Manager and Winemaker of Inglenook.

Born and bred in the southwest of France, Bascaules was a gifted student with a love of nature that ultimately inspired his passion for oenology. After receiving an agricultural engineering degree with a specialty in oenology from the graduate school of agronomy in Montpellier, France, Bascaules began his career at the legendary Chateau Margaux, one of France's five First Growth Bordeaux wineries, serving as assistant to the Estate Director, and during the past eleven years, was elevated to Estate Director overseeing the vineyards and cellars and working alongside renowned General Manager Paul Pontallier.

At Inglenook, Bascaules now leads a team of talented winemaking professionals dedicated to Coppola's vision of making Inglenook the finest New World estate wine produced in the Old World style. In 1890, founder Gustave Niebaum stated that Inglenook would one day "produce the finest wines, to equal and excel the most famous vintages of Europe." Over a century later, Coppola and Bascaules continue the Inglenook legacy.
