Wine Details

Winemaker's Notes

This wine exudes its sense of place—the personality and quality of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Napa Valley's Rutherford Bench. Our 2008 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.
