Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
from Napa Valley, California
Full violet-ruby color. Distinctive Rutherford aromas of black cherry, dark olive and mineral scents, combined with an underlying whiff of smoky-vanilla oak mixed with wild blackberry. The flavors echo the nose; olive, black cherry and Rutherford minerality, framed by medium acidity and very suave supple tannin. Medium-full bodied in texture with a fine balance between the alcohol, fruit and tannin, this young wine already drinks well, but has the stuffing to support 6-10 years aging.
Delicious with fettuccine in a rabbit and mushroom sauce, veal with demi-glace and green peppercorn sauce, or simply grilled marinated lamb.

The BV Ruthereford in my opinion, is the best Cabernet I've ever tasted from within the $20, to $30 price range. You can actually taste some of the nuances of the "George De Latour", which is my favorite Caberenet in ANY price range. In all honesty, I'd hate to tell you how underpriced I think it is, for fear the you might raise the price. A couple of package stores in my area told me that I was so passionate about BV wines, that I should be selling them!! If BV ever needs a rep in the Northeast, please don't hesitate to contact me. And keep on selling my favorite wines at a very good price!! Salud!!
