    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine exudes its sense of placeā€”the personality and quality of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Napa Valley's Rutherford Bench. Our 2008 Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon captures this area with briary blackberry, dark plum, black cherry, chocolate and tobacco leaf. The famous Rutherford Dust gives the wine cocoa-powder tannins and texture, while well-integrated oak adds toasty mocha notes to the generous aromas and expansive flavors.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth and graceful, with rich, spicy, loamy earth and subtle berry shadings. Makes points with its delicacy and finesse, gaining complexity and ending with touches of licorice and mineral. Drink now through 2018. 30,000 cases made.

    very rich and bold tasting with the base fruit very prominent, great drinkability extremely smooth, Had this among a few others at a Christmas party and this was one of the first to go, most paired it with Chocolate Truffles.

    A solid wine with a wonderful nose and deep color. Mouthfeel is beautiful with good extraction and outstanding fruit. Great wine for the price and much better than the WS rating might indicate. Cellared away a few to watch develop over time. The wine carries good Rutherford fruit, smooth texture with enough extraction to develop boldness and borderline big wine.
