Beaulieu Vineyard

Beaulieu Vineyard Beaulieu Vineyard, rooted in the benchlands of Rutherford in world-renowned Napa Valley, has pioneered California winemaking since the turn of the century. Founded in 1900 by French immigrant Georges de Latour, Beaulieu ("beautiful place" in French) Vineyard today spans nearly 1500 acres, and its wines are marked by its proud tradition as an innovative leader in the history of the California wine industry. BV can boast being among the first to import disease-resistant, bench-grafted rootstock; the first to use American oak barrels for aging wine; and for producing some of the first recognized world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from California.

  California Syrah
Dark ruby-violet. BV's first California Syrah is exuberant, fruity and just plain delicious! The aroma reveals ripe, jammy, berry and minty-oak scents with a hint of sour cherry. The lush, supple, mouth-filling flavors show a wealth of black pepper, black olive and cocoa , with a juicy yet layered texture. A hint of tannin provides definition to the rich fruitiness of the wine. This is a wine to drink young, to enjoy with grilled meats or poultry, and with Mediterranean cuisine such as ratatouille, bouillabaise or penne all'amatriciana.
  Carneros Chardonnay
Fine yellow-green gold color. The opulent, forward fruit strongly manifests itself with rich, pear-honey and vanilla extract aromas, with overtones of fresh herbs and marzipan. Very full, lush flavors reveal integrated, typically Carneros, ripe apple and peachy fruit combined with the spicy vanilla-cinnamon elements of oak. The finish is creamy, round, and toasty, neither "charry" nor resiny, the oak finely balanced the powerful fruit. This is a luxuriously textured, high extract wine; a great foil for rich fish dishes, savory chicken, or a veal roast.
  Coastal Chardonnay
Light, brilliant metallic green-gold color. Very fresh aromas of Granny Smith apples and clear citrus, with a touch of herbs. Medium body. Cool, herb and apple flavors with a touch of lime blossom show fine vitality matched with a good supple mouthfeel. The wine has fine medium weight, with lightly buttery finish; clean and inviting. An excellent aperitif or seafood wine.
  Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark ruby-black color. Lovely herbal, black cherry, plum, cassis and dark chocolate aromas. Medium full-bodied, with lush berry, anise and jam flavors, balanced by sweet lush fruit and supple tannins. Very fine Cabernet fruit flavors and firm but plush texture make this wine drinkable now, yet capable of aging for 5-8 years. Enjoy with grilled meat dishes, a rich lamb stew or firm cheeses like Manchego.
