Wine Maker Notes
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. From Calistoga in the north to Carneros in the south, our Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley wines reflect this region's diverse terroir with classic varietal character.
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 18 months of aging, selecting Hungarian, American and French barrels to achieve a complex array of oak spices. A blend of Syrah added spice, while splashes of other varietals enhanced the wine’s texture and flavor profile.
With its firm structure, this Cabernet Sauvignon complements full-flavored cuisine, such as garlic and rosemary grilled lamb chops, medallions of beef tenderloin, portabella mushrooms with polenta, or aged Gouda with walnut toasts.
