Beaulieu Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (750ML)

90pts Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 4% Touriga Nacional, 3% Malbec and 2% other complementary varietals, aged in French, American and European oak (30% new) for 15 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps boldly from the glass with boisterous crème de cassis, blueberry pie and baking spice scents with touches of chocolate box and potpourri. Full, rich and opulent, it has a plush texture and tons of forward, spicy fruit, finishing fruity."

Winemaking Notes:
After the grapes were destemmed and crushed, we fermented the must in stainless steel tanks until dry. We then pressed the wines and transferred them to toasted 60-gallon oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and 15 months of aging. We blended several varieties with the Cabernet Sauvignon to add plushness to the wine’s mid-palate and finesse to the lingering finish, as well as to enhance the flavor and aroma profile."

Tasting Notes:
With layers of wild raspberry, black cherry and juicy black plum followed by complex nuances of more brambly elements like savory wild sage, fresh mint and forest floor on the finish. The tannins are full and round giving the wine a silky, smooth texture and mouthfeel, with a delicate structure complementing the mouth filling flavors. Nicely integrated baking spice notes of cinnamon and brioche from toasted oak barrels are interwoven through the aromas and flavors, complementing the lengthy finish. This rich, mouth pleasing Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable and delicious now, yet promises cellar worthiness.
