Description

Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve wines are handcrafted from the finest grapes of the vintage, focusing on our premier estates in Rutherford, Carneros and other Napa Valley appellations. For more than 100 years, Beaulieu Vineyard has set the benchmark 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. Our Pinot Noir is sourced from some of our finest estate vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, with the majority coming from our Los Carneros estate in the far Northwest corner of the Carneros appellation.

Wine & Vintage Details

Tasting Note

This Reserve Pinot Noir is incredibly aromatic and expressive with beautifully balanced, flavorful fruit. Notes of lifted vibrant Bing cherry and fresh blackberry are layered with nuances of red berry cobbler and stewed strawberries. This Pinot Noir is soft and round with good saturation and midstructure, leading to a voluptuous, silky mouthfeel.

Vintage

The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2018 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2018 wines are of very high quality with lower alcohol, concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity.

Vineyard & Winemaking Details

Carneros AVA

Carneros

Vineyard

Our Pinot Noir is sourced from some of our finest estate vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, with the majority coming from our Los Carneros estate in the far Northwest corner of the Carneros appellation. Unlike most of Carneros, which is largely uplifted bay bottoms with soils composed of clay, the soils at here are variations of soils influenced by volcanic origin. Combining these well-drained, rocky upland soils with the extreme western location closer to the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay make this site an ideal place to grow Burgundian varieties, of which up to 20 distinct Pinot Noir clones are planted. These reserve-quality grapes yield impeccably balanced Pinot Noir with abundant personality. A selection of Dijon clones perfumed the wine with floral and vibrant red-fruit notes, while Pommard clones enhanced the wine’s dark-fruit flavors, structure and minerality.
