Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2012

Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2012

Sku: 002837

BV Rutherford is a well polished Cab that's almost sweet in flavor, but it's actually a dry wine. Just oozes cherries, currants and raspberries, with a pastry richness that suggests a chocolate-covered nougat candy. Best now through 2011


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.
