There are eight different varietals present in the 2005 Beauzeaux Red Wine, and each requires its own combination of soil, climate and conditions. We sourced our grapes from a variety of regions in California to make the best blend. The Central Coast vineyards produce a striking minerality, while the North Coast vineyards provide dark fruit flavors and a touch of spice. We included fruit from these areas in the 2005 Beauzeaux.
The 2005 vintage began with an unusually wet and cool spring. August brought heat and a cool autumn followed. Harvest was completed just before Thanksgiving, one of the longest harvests on record. The 2005 vintage shows exceptional quality, and we expect it will be one of the best of the decade.
Blend: 68% Zinfandel, 21% Syrah, 3% Petite Sirah, 3% Charbono, 2% Lagrein, 1% Valdiguie, 1% Grenache, 1% Tempranillo.
I used this wine for guests at my home for dinner and they were very impressed.
My fiancee and love this wine. We bought a case a few months ago and just bought two more. It's our house wine. We'll serve something nicer with a meal we go to a lot of trouble over, but for the price it can't be beat.
Nice bold red wine. Enjoyed the vanilla and the spice notes. I found it to be a juicy red. For the price it is an excellent every day red wine. Will buy again.
