Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2012

Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 750ML 2012        
Sku: 4808

Strong Cabernet aromas of black cherry, anise and dark cocoa are enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied flavors show fully ripe, earthy Cabernet fruit with a hint of dusty minerals. Moderate acidity, medium tannins and a touch of new oak highlight the fruit beautifully. Flavors show fine depth and structure thanks to the year's long growing season and outstanding fall weather.

This medium-weight version offers a firmly tannic profile of dusty berry from the get-go. Turns dryer on the finish, ending with an edge of cedar and chicory. Drink now. 35,000 cases made.-JL
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2014)
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford represents a beautiful value with notes of dusty, loamy soil, dark black cherries, black cassis, cedarwood and Christmas fruitcake. Fleshy, round and sexy, it should drink well for 8-10 years.

Wine maker notes
Grapes from sites throughout Napa Valley were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation lasted 7-10 days, reaching a peak juice temperature of 80 F, before pressi_level2ng off at dryness. Fifteen percent of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel, contributing to a richer mid-palate texture and well-integrated new oak component. The wine was further aged in a variety of oak barrels prior to blending and bottling for 18 months in American and European oak barrels.
