Garnet red in colour. The bouquet shows a generous core of bramble berry fruits with blackberries, blueberries, black cherry compote and cassis, with hints of anise, while the Merlot brings vibrant, riper notes of plum and dark cherry. The Merlot also softens the tannins and adds a plush texture with notes of black currant and plum on the palate. Malbec contributes fresh wild raspberry notes, while the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot complete the blend with darker berry fruits and savoury spices alongside delicate floral and woodsy nuances of violet, cedar, forest floor and wild sage. Well integrated notes of mocha and molasses also pique the senses incorporated from having been aged in new French oak barrels – which heighten the overall aromatic expression and lengthen 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.
