Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2008 Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with lush blackberry and black-currant character, with nuances of red plum and cedar box. Hints of vanilla and smoky oak spice elevate the rich aromas and add complexity to the bright, beautifully balanced flavors. Vineyards with distinctly different terroirs create the wine's symphony of flavors and velvety texture. With its firm structure, this Cabernet Sauvignon complements full-flavored cuisine, such as garlic and rosemary grilled lamb chops, medallions of beef tenderloin, portabella mushrooms with polenta, or aged Gouda with walnut toasts.

About Beaulieu Vineyard:

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistent French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.
