Description

For more than 100 years, Beaulieu Vineyard has been setting the standard for rich, classic Napa Valley wines. Our legacy honors the marriage between state-of-the-art technology and gentle, traditional winemaking methods, a combination that enhances the expression of our remarkable vineyard terroir. Inspired by “the Maestro” himself, famed Beaulieu Vineyard Winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, these limited production wines allow us to experiment with unique varietals, vineyard lots and blends.

Wine & Vintage Details

Tasting Note

The wine is dense, strong and robust, while being supported and balanced with a line of acidity providing great weight and roundness. All leading to a firm, powerful finish with great density, black pepper notes and spice.

Vintage Note

The 2017 vintage in the Napa Valley was smaller yielding but high in quality. The region enjoyed much needed rain during the winter months ending the drought. A short period of warmer than usual temperatures during Labor Day weekend accelerated harvest for early ripening grapes varieties, resulting in an intense and, at times, unpredictable harvest. Though yields were lower than usual, the wines show exceptional flavor intensity and conditions were perfect for producing a Cabernet with beautiful fruit as well as tremendous concentration of flavors, highly saturated color, and layers of complexity.

Vineyard & Winemaking Details

Rutherford AVA

Rutherford

Vineyard

The fruit for this wine comes from Beaulieu Vineyard Ranch 2 which lies just south of Beaulieu Vineyard Ranch 1 on the westside of Hwy 29 in the heart of Rutherford. The 85-acre vineyard is planted to mostly Cabernet Sauvignon although a small amount of high quality Sauvignon Blanc is also grown here. Like BV Ranch 1, this vineyard site enjoys optimal sun exposure and experiences the cooling influences from regular morning fog allowing for a long, even growing season. BV Ranch 2 is known for producing full bodied, concentrated wines with that signature “Rutherford Dust” flavor profile.
