Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
from Napa Valley, California
Ideal conditions throughout the 2007 growing season made for a smooth and easy harvest of phenomenal quality. Napa Valley's famous night fog persisted during ripening, retaining bright grape acidity, while the moderately sunny days developed ripe flavors. The varietals ripened in textbook order, with late-maturing Cabernet Sauvignon wrapping up the harvest from late September to mid-October. Mother Nature dealt us a good hand for crafting beautifully balanced, opulent wines.
Our 2007 Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the terroir of the Rutherford appellation with lush, brambly blackberry, cassis and ripe black cherry character nuanced with cocoa, licorice, earth and cedar. Well-integrated oak spice from barrel aging heightens the aromas and lingers on the long, fruit-imbued finish. Ripe, firm tannins structure the dense, richly textured flavors, giving the wine both approachability and cellar-worthiness.
