Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Blackberry jam nose
Herbs and cocoa on the palate
Finishes with berries and a layer of olives

I enjoyed this wine. It has some interesting nuances and is knit together well. There isn't much of that "Rutherford dust" that people talk about, but it tastes like a decent Cab.

I've seen a pretty broad range of prices for this wine, from about $19 to $26 for a 750 mL bottle. I was in the hunt for a half bottle recently, and picked one up for $14. It was just the right wine for the evening, and appreciated it's classic Cab characteristics. Raise a glass!
