(From 2009 Vintage) 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.
WE 92 - There is an explosion of blackberry fruit, earthiness as you kick up some dust and a hint of dried leaf character." With opulent dark berry, black cherry, cocoa, anise, forest loam and mineral notes, the wine has well-integrated oak spices that heighten alongside fruity aromas for a long, lingering finish.
heavy tannins, great flavor but after taste is bit stronger but it is god wine over all
