    Winemaker Notes

    Here’s a fruit-forward, velvety Cabernet Sauvignon that’s perfect to pour with gourmet hamburgers, barbecued steak, spice-rubbed roast pork or whatever fits your mood. You’ll find that lush plum, cassis (black currant), chocolate, spice and cedar notes fill this wine’s aromas and soft, easy-to-enjoy flavors. This Cab’s supple tannins provide enough structure to pair with red meats, yet its fruity flavors also complement roast duck or turkey with cranberry sauce.

    Century Cellars, California
    Century Cellars, founded in 2003, is cellared and bottled in Napa. Century Cellars was created by Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) as an way to offer great wine, for everyday enjoyment and for premium restaurants by-the-glass selections. At Century Cellars, we pride ourselves on growing the finest grape fruit in California from our own premium California American Vineyards Appellation vineyards. Our goal at Century Cellars, is to offer fruit forward, varietal correct, food friendly wines at a great everyday price. Our varietals are small-lot crafted and offered in the following varietals: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot,. Available in both 750ml and 1.5L sizes.

    About Beaulieu Vineyard: BV was named by Fernande de Latour, the wife of BV founder Georges de Latour. Georges purchased the property in 1900 and surprised Fernande by bringing her to the spot that would eventually be the birthplace of one of California’s premiere wineries. One look and Fernande was in heaven – she exclaimed “Beaulieu!” which means “beautiful place” in French. That is how BV or Beaulieu Vineyard got its name.

    Fernande’s famous hospitality and Georges de Latour’s entrepreneurial spirit are how the BV winery gained its reputation. Fernande would be sure that if she hosted anyone in her home, she would always greet the guest with a glass of wine at the door. Georges, on the other hand, was out and about town and was quickly becoming a highly respected figure in the California wine industry. In 1902, the opportunity to purchase more property was presented to him by his neighbor and he bought and planted 127 acres, conveniently located right next to his home.

    By 1911, Georges was already garnering attention for his work. This is a quote from the St. Helena Star in May 1911, “When it comes to quality, California is greatly indebted to Mr. G. de Latour, of Rutherford, who for some years has imported hundreds of thousands of the choicest French grafted wines, which have been planted in all the important vineyards in the state.”

    Red Wine

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
