"The 2010 Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with lush blackberry and black-currant character, with nuances of red plum and cedar box. Hints of vanilla and smoky oak spice elevate the rich aromas and add complexity to the bright, beautifully balanced flavors. Vineyards with distinctly different terroirs create the wine's symphony of flavors and velvety texture. 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." - Winery Notes
|Bright Cherry hue with pronounced fruit filled bouquet of cherry, slight green pepper and a touch of cedar with tart cherry later on.
Palate--herbal but well integrated cherry and tart cherry flavors with light finish. Not bad but certainly not "wowing." Served with Thanksgiving dinner and our guest loved it saying it was the best wine they had ever had. Beauty is sometimes in the eye of the behold--or in this case, in the tongue of the taster. At $12 on sale, raise a glass.
