Beaulieu Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Inviting nose of dark berries and black licorice
Full bodied on the palate
Raspberry, gamy notes, and spice on the finish
One of the ways to summarize this wine is to say that it's very Cabernet-like. It has the dark fruit and black licorice profie of many good wines that accurately express the varietal.
Beaulieu Vineyards makes many Cabernets, and this one is the basic Napa Valley bottling that runs $20 or so. I found it for $15 and grabbed a couple bottles because it's an easy go-to wine for the Cabernet crowd. Pair with a good meat dish, and raise a glass!
