Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
The 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.

A firm and silky red with blackberries and currants, as well as iodine and redwood undertones. Medium-bodied, creamy and delicious. Shows real Napa character. 84% Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Franc and Charbono.Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points
With small doses of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Touriga Nacional, this well-made red is smooth and widely appealing. Black cherry, vanilla and blackberry flavors are juicy and lengthy, with an impressive backbone of freshness.
