Winemaker's Notes:

A perfect marriage of complexity and approachability, this 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lucsious black cherry and berry aromas balanced by rich mocha and sweet vanilla top notes. Juicy dark fruit dominates the palate, lending a full-bodied smoothness to the soft tannins and toasted oak. The wine's appealing interplay of ripe fruit and integrated oak makes it perfect food companion, pairing well with pasta, pork tenderloin or herb-roasted chicken.

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.
