Probably the most backward of all the wines, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve certainly has its own charm, but it does show more oak tannin. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, and at 213 cases, one of their smallest cuvées. This dense purple wine seems more restrained and muted compared to its siblings. It is impressively concentrated and deep, but more of a long distance runner, at least out of the gate. I would put this one away for 2-4 years and drink it over the following two decades.
Founded in 2002, Beau Vigne's vineyard is located within the Atlas Peak AVA, on the back end of the famous Soda Canyon road. The soils throughout the 10 acre vineyard are volcanic. With Kirk Venge as the consulting winemaker, and the vineyard being backed by family roots that have been instilled in Napa since 1913, the bold and delicious Cabernet Sauvignon’s prove to be the desire of every Napa collector.
