Beaulieu Vineyards: BV California Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from some of California’s most renowned and emerging appellations. More than half of the vineyards are in Lodi and the California Delta, which produce grapes of great intensity and flavor. The rest of the blend comes from coastal vineyards that are bathed in sunshine during the day and cooled by the marine layer at night, ensuring even and steady ripening of the grapes. The combination of these regions offers a wine that is complex and balanced.
Napa Valley: Napa Valley’s Rutherford, Calistoga and St. Helena appellations produce the majority of Cabernet Sauvignon and are similar to a Bordeaux grape. The diverse soils and microclimates, as well as the various clones of the grape and cultivation techniques, contributed to this wine’s complex flavor profile. The Napa region in 2017 enjoyed much needed rain during the winter months ending the drought. Though yields were lower than usual, the wines showed exceptional flavor intensity and growing conditions were perfect for producing a wine with beautiful fruit and tremendous concentration, highly saturated color, and plenty of complexity.
