2017 Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Their 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with layers of blackberry, Bing cherry and ripe plum, followed by notes of mocha and 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, mouth pleasing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable and delicious now, yet promises cellar worthiness.

ABOUT THE WINERY
The Beaulieu Vineyards express their namesake from the French term for “beautiful place”. Located in Napa Valley, the vineyard was established in 1904 by Goerges de Latour who was an astute opportunist and also purchased additional vineyards during prohibition for reduced prices. In the midst of prohibition, Beaulieu Vineyards managed to survive by continuing to produce wines for religious services. This Vineyard is also notable for being one of the first to popularize modern French wine making techniques in California.
