Beaulieu Vineyard’s 2013 Napa Valley Rarity delivers massive power and weight, yet with uncommon elegance and suppleness. This wine’s profuse aromas of blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and violet are mirrored by the opulent flavors that explode on the palate. Seamlessly integrated vanilla and oak spice nuances, from barrel fermentation and aging in entirely new barrels, add even more complexity to the layered Cabernet Sauvignon expression. “Rutherford Dust” tannins contribute texture, while bright acidity keeps its fresh, purity of focus. This is a wine that will age for decades.
