Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Not available on this storeWe sourced the majority of the Cabernet from Napa Valley’s Rutherford, Calistoga and St. Helena appellations. The diverse soils and microclimates, as well as the various clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and cultivation techniques, contributed to this wine’s complex flavor profile. The balance of the blend was grown both in our estate vineyards and other quality vineyards of Napa Valley. Vintage The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2018 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2018 Cabernets are of very high quality with plenty of concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity. Tasting Note Our 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows aromas of lovely red berry fruits on the nose, supported by notes of wild blackberry, black cherry, red currant and ripe plum, backed up by delicate oak notes of warm holiday spices, including; cinnamon and star anise spice with vanilla bean. On the palate, the wine is fruit-forward and ripe with hints of lavender and violet leading to fresh strawberry, black raspberry, red cherry and cola nut, supported by delicate fresh herbs – hints of mint, mocha and milk chocolate. The tannins are focused and long providing a rich texture and mouthfeel, with an elegant balance and structure that complements the mouth filling flavors. Well integrated baking spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg from the toasted oak barrels are seamlessly woven throughout the wine, complementing the berry fruit aromas and flavors which leads to a long mouthwatering finish. This rich, pleasing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable and delicious now, yet promises cellar worthiness when stored properly.
