Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011 wine review by (PB)
Palate--Unique first impression of inky, solid fruit with nice chocolate tinged berry beam mid palate, and a tasty little "something" that again is unique on the finish.
Okay this is certainly a weird example of the grape and especially from the folks at BV. But it's not corked and its not even "bad" it is just unique; I suspect breathing will straighten it out!
After some more time it takes on the traditional aromas you'd expect but this is still a stand out wine. I paid around $15 for it and I'd buy a case if I could; raise a glass while I get my NY strip Steak off the grill!
