Beaulieu Vineyards Napa Cabernet (Rutherford) 2005 wine review by (PB)
Cherry-black cherry hue with cigar box, cedar, licorice and cocoa aromas.
Palate--relaxed yet bold, with classic Cab flavors and slight green pepper, spice with blackberry and cherry fruit that lingers.
A classic Napa offering from this reliable producer.
Friends brought this with them to our Thanksgiving feast and it was a perfect pairing for all the spice and strong flavors a typical turkey brings with it. It is drinking well now but would improve for another couple years. At the $20 price point raise a glass to delicious!
