This Cabernet Sauvignon truly expresses its Rutherford AVA sourcing with tremendous saturation of colour, aromas and flavours. The bouquet is ripe with vibrant blackberry, raspberry and black cherry notes alongside nuances of violet, vanilla and sweet oak spice. The structured 'Rutherford dust' tannins give this its signature fine cocoa powder texture and expansive mouthfeel, while balanced acidity from the fantastic growing season and lower yielding vintage provides concentration, depth and freshness on the finish.

Beaulieu Vineyards, whose name means “beautiful place” in French, is the largest producer of Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley and has been at the forefront of quality wine making for almost 120 years. Founded in 1900 by French immigrants, Georges and Fernande de Latour, this winery in Rutherford, California started as a small area of land before becoming a global giant. Georges hope to create wines that rivalled those of his native France. In doing so, De Latour quickly made a name for himself by importing Phylloxera-resistant rootstock from Europe to the recently-ravaged fledgling California wine industry. Beaulieu was one of the few wineries that survived throughout Prohibition. While most wineries were closing their doors, Beaulieu was increasing business through a contract producing sacramental wine for the Catholic Church. Once Prohibition ended, Georges dedicated himself to researching new methods to bring about the best expressions he could muster. This led him to his homeland of France where he brought back to California André Tchelistcheff, who would go on to become a legendary figure in California wine making, while earning himself the nickname, 'The Maestro'. Today, Beaulieu honours their own past while pushing the boundaries of contemporary wine making.
