    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our 2006 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon captures the true essence of Rutherford. "It is like walking through a blackberry bramble in the heat of summer," explains Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor. "There is an explosion of blackberry fruit, earthiness as you kick up some dust and a hint of dried leaf character." With opulent dark berry, black cherry, cocoa, anise, forest loam and mineral notes, the wine has well-integrated oak spices that heighten alongside fruity aromas for a long, lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A very fine Cabernet, although the tannins are a bit fierce now. Beyond the astringency are plush flavors of blackberries, black currants, cola, spices and sweet, smoky cedar. Needs time. Best 2011 and beyond.

    Beaulieu's Rutherford bottling is consistently one of the best values in Napa Valley cabernet; this '06 release has both classic structure to its fruit and more contemporary, chocolatey tannin from new oak. It's refined, but the structure holds its shape and muscularity, with scents of cherries, cherry leaf and eucalyptus. A clean and generous cabernet to decant for roast game birds or roast beef.
