Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - 750ml
92 Points James Suckling
A firm and silky red with blackberries and currants, as well as iodine and redwood undertones. Medium-bodied, creamy and delicious. Shows real Napa character. 84% Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Franc and Charbono.
Our 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with layers of blackberry, Bing cherry and ripe plum, followed by notes of mocha and chocolate. The tannins are focused and long providing a rich texture and mouthfeel, with an elegant balance and structure that complements the mouth filling flavors. Well integrated baking spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg from the toasted oak barrels are seamlessly woven throughout the wine, complementing the berry fruit aromas and flavors which leads to a long mouthwatering finish. This rich, mouth pleasing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable and delicious now, yet promises cellar worthiness.
We sourced the majority of the Cabernet from Napa Valley’s Rutherford, Calistoga and St. Helena appellations. The diverse soils and microclimates, as well as the various clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and cultivation techniques, contributed to this wine’s complex flavor profile. The balance of the blend was grown both in our estate vineyards and other quality vineyards of Napa Valley.
After the grapes were destemmed and crushed, we fermented the must in stainless steel tanks until dry. We then pressed the wines and transferred them to toasted 60-gallon oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aged 15 months. We blended several varieties with the Cabernet Sauvignon to add plushness to the wine’s mid-palate and finesse to the lingering finish, as well as to enhance the flavor and aroma profile.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
