Tasting Notes


A beautiful wine, with ripe cherry and plum notes. Very long and expressive despite a light gritty edge. Drink now through 2020.


A strong effort from Beaulieu, the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautifully sweet nose of spicy oak intermixed with black cherries and currants. Full-bodied, rich, pure, and concentrated, it combines restraint and elegance with power and muscle. It will age well for two decades. While Beaulieu is no longer one of California`s cutting edge wineries, this is classic stuff. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2020.

The Winery

Beaulieu Vineyard

Over a hundred years ago, when George de Latour and his wife were on their first visit to the Napa Valley, they exclaimed “beau lieu” upon seeing what would soon be their property. It means “beautiful pace” in French, so beautiful that de Latour promptly sold his business and founded the first four acres of Beaulieu Vineyards, known by many as BV. De Latour did two things that made him a Napa rock star- he imported Phylloxera resistant rootstock from Europe and a revolutionary winemaker born in Russia and trained in France, Andre Tchelistcheff. For over a century, BV has been producing wines that are classic, bold and quintessential Napa Valley.
