Beaulieu Vineyard was built upon founder Georges de Latour's personal vision and relentless commitment to making world-class wines from Napa Valley. More than one hundred years later, they have the advantage of owning and working with some of the best vineyards in the state.
Elegant and nicely balanced, our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the long-hangtime vintage with its core of vibrant briary blackberry, black cherry and dark plum expression. We added Syrah to enhance the wine’s juiciness and spice, and a splash of Cabernet Franc for a hint of violet perfume. The fruit-focused aromas and flavors take center stage, while subtle vanilla-oak and mocha nuances from barrel aging linger in the background. The cool growing season enhanced this wine’s supple structure of bright acidity and fine-grained tannins, making it immediately enjoyable with mellow cheeses and red meats, such as filet of beef tenderloin accompanied by a Yukon gold potato and fennel gratin.
