December 2018

California Grapevine included 90+ scores for Beaulieu Vineyard in the December 2018 issue:

92 points - 2015 Beaulieu Vineyard, “Georges De Latour, Private Reserve,” Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley – “Medium-dark ruby color; attractive, forward, fragrant, ripe, black cherry, cassis, and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of dried herbs, tobacco, mocha, and rose petal; full body; rich, ripe, textured, elegant, spicy, red and black fruit flavors with firm structure, good acid balance, a trace of toasty oak, and some plushness in the mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very enjoyable to drink and enjoy now, though best to age for three to five more years. Very highly recommended.”

90 points - 2015 Beaulieu Vineyard, “Tapestry, Reserve,” Napa Valley – “Medium-dark ruby; attractive, fragrant, spicy, dark cherry, cassis, and blackberry fruit aroma with herbal notes and a hint of mocha; full body; rich, nicely balanced, easy to drink, red fruit flavors with undertones of spicy oak, and some plushness in the silky mouthfeel; full, though relatively soft tannin; lingering aftertaste. Shows some elegance and very enjoyable to drink now, though should continue to develop with another three to five more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.”
