Tasting Notes


Even in this vintage, which was not so great, Beaulieu has succeeded with this dramatic, classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s absolutely delicious, offering a range of blackberry, black currant and cedar flavors, complexed with notes of chocolate, anise, sweet smoky leather and Asian spices. Beautiful now for its velvety softness, but has the inherent structure to last for a long time. Through 2014, and much longer if you like older Cabernet.


Very deep and extracted, and showing again that 2006 is a vintage capable of making very good wines even it has proven to be more difficult than in recent years, this expressive effort smells of currants, black cherry and hints of tea leaves with a nice dollop of sweet, slightly caramelly oak on top. Supple at entry, then firming up across the palate and tightening without losing its way at the finish, this one boasts classic structure and classic character.

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.
