Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 375ml 2010     
Sku: 1796289

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Strong Cabernet aromas of black cherry, anise and dark cocoa are enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied flavors show fully ripe, earthy Cabernet fruit with a hint of dusty minerals. Moderate acidity, medium tannins and a touch of new oak highlight the fruit beautifully. Flavors show fine depth and structure thanks to the year's long growing season and outstanding fall weather.

 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2013)
The 2010s I tasted were all very good wines with their inexpensive 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford exhibiting attractive spicy oak, soft, round, red and black currant fruit, the dusty, earthy, loamy character often referred to as Rutherford dust, and soft tannins. Attractive and delicious with good size, it should drink well for at least a decade.

Wine maker notes
Grapes from sites throughout Napa Valley were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation lasted 7-10 days, reaching a peak juice temperature of 80 F, before pressi_level2ng off at dryness. Fifteen percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel, contributing to a richer mid-palate texture and well-integrated new oak component. The wine was further aged in a variety of oak barrels prior to blending and bottling for 18 months in American and European oak barrels.
