Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Beaulieu Vineyard is Excellent! It opens with an attractive violet, black plum, black currant, and black tea bouquet with hints of wet stone, orange zest, and black olive. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is well-balanced, stunning, round, classy and fresh. The flavor profile is a graphite, black currant, and black tea blend with notes of blueberry and black cherry. We also detected hints of vanilla and cedar mixed in. The finish is dry, and its refined dusty tannins build-up and last for a very long time. The Tasting Panel would sip this Cab by the fireplace. With food, we would pair it with a porterhouse steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This vintage is truly exemplary, with a nuanced, exuberant nose showing dark, ripe, berry fruit aromas of black raspberry, red currant, and black cherry, alongside delicate chaparral herb notes of wild lavender, rose, fresh mint, sage, and thyme. Exotic spiced notes from the well-integrated new French oak barrel aging adds caramel, cedar, and clove, accompanying plush fruit seamlessly, showcasing the depth, elegance, and balance of this world-renowned Cabernet. Full-bodied with tremendous concentration and power, the broad palate is multilayered with enticing flavors of dark black cherry, red currant, cocoa nib, amaretto, espresso, and graphite. Signature “Rutherford Dust” tannins add a fine cocoa-powder texture, with a long lift and persistent finish, while secondary notes of earth, espresso, and pencil shavings add to the complexity and nuance. The mouthwatering palate is supple and fresh, with balanced acidity, demonstrating classically elegant, luscious, and alluring character. Incredibly drinkable upon release in its youth and highly cellarable for many years to come.
