Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

Wine Details

Wine Description

(1999 Vintage) Fine deep ruby black, nearly opaque color. Strong, minerally, loam and spice aromas with loads of black currant fruit and a hint of opulent new oak vanilla. Deeply constituted ripe black fruit flavors show a lot of briary-dusty notes as well, typical of Rutherford Cabernet. Rich and fleshy, with moderately full tannins and a strong ripe finish, this should age well for at least a decade, but is quite dense and delicious now.
