    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine exudes its sense of place—the personality and quality of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Napa Valley's Rutherford Bench. Our 2009 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:

    It takes Rutherford dust to make great Cabernet,” said legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff. Our 2009 Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon gives proof to his statement with rich dark fruit character woven with enticing anise, cocoa, licorice, loam and dried-herb notes.

    The Wine Advocate

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a mouthful. This big, brawny Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with dark red fruit, smoke, tar and licorice. It shows gorgeous balance and fabulous length in an up-front style that is sure to find many admirers for many reasons, not the least of which is its soothing price tag. Despite its overt fruit, the 2009 seems to have more than enough structure to drink well for another 5-7 years, maybe more.
