Clone 4 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

So freaking big! Very heavily extracted. I don't think this wine will age much more than 5 more years. There is plenty of fresh fruit and seductive richness, but nothing is in balance. however, it's delicious. #clone4 #beaulieuvineyard #bv #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley #rutherford — 7 years ago

Private Reserve Georges de Latour Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Wilfred Wong

One of the decade's top wines, the 2002 Beaulieu Vyd Georges De Latour Private Reserve Cabernet is stately and expansive. Showing a firm palate, the wine offers a peek into the intricate world of the ultra premium Cabernet. Still away from its maximum moment, this wine should enjoy another decade of development. Yet plenty fine to enjoy today. (August 14, 2013, Rutherford, CA) #wine #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley #rutherford #beaulieuvineyard — 9 years ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Wilfred Wong

A cabernet that we can count on has produced a solid 2012 effort! Dark ruby color, almost brooding; ripe currants and dust in the aromas, pretty much what I had expected, fine depth and range of elements; medium bodied, pert and piquant on the palate, well integrated tannins; dry, nice acidity, well balanced; ripe currants and berries in the flavors, with a bit of oak, very good concentration; ripe berries and sweet oak in the flavors, nicely melded; medium finish, sweet tannins in the aftertaste. This is a trealy fine BV Rutherford and ranks amongst the winery's best. (Tasted: January 5, 2015, San Francisco, CA) (Best Served: 2014-2019) [Sourcing: 80% of the grapes are from vineyard blocks in BV Ranches No. 1, No. 2 and No. 10; 95% Rutherford AVA and 5% Napa AVA] [Composition: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec] [Winemaking Highlights: Barrel Aging 15 months (50% French oak, 35% American oak, 15% Hungarian oak (25% new barrels)] [Technical: 14.3% alcohol, 5.9g/L acidity, 3.70 pH] [Jeffrey Stambor, Winemaker] #cabernetsauvignon #napacabernet #beaulieuvineyard #redwines #napavalley — 7 years ago
