Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Napa Valley, California, United StatesThis is a surprising Napa cabernet in more ways than one. On one hand, it's a more traditional style that doesn't chase ripeness or fear herbaceousness, as exemplified by its bright red currant fruit and dried herbs. On the other hand, it shows a glimpse of Napa's potential future. Wineries are exploring alternatives to cabernet as temperatures continue to rise year after year, and in this case, small components of touriga nacional and petit sirah are incorporated into the blend. The end result is a wine that is fresh, food friendly, and frankly just delicious. Recommended.Tasted: 24 September 2020Tasted by: Prices:
