BEAULIEU VINEYARD BV CABERNET SAUVIGNON RUTHERFORD NAPA 2015
This Cabernet Sauvignon boldly boasts its Rutherford AVA sourcing with its great saturation of color, aromas and flavors. Its massive brambly blackberry, cassis and black plum expression intermingles with nuances of earthy forest loam, mocha, pipe tobacco, caramel and sweet oak spices. The structured “Rutherford dust” tannins give this wine its dense texture and expansive mouthfeel, while balanced acidity from the excellent growing season adds vibrancy.
In 1900, when Georges de Latour's wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it "beau lieu," or "beautiful place." Shortly thereafter, de Latour sold his thriving cream of tartar business, bought the four-acre ranch and founded Beaulieu Vineyard with the vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival those of his native France. De Latour quickly made a name for himself by importing Phylloxera-resistant rootstock from Europe to the recently-ravaged fledgling California wine industry.
