Rutherford Grown Cabernet Sauvignon
Creamy, chocolaty taste
Dark berries, hint of smoke
Luxurious, and full-flavor
Enjoyed with a seared filet mignon
Discovered @Clearman’s North Woods Inn, San Gabriel, CA.
BV stands for Beaulieu Vineyard, and it is a winery in Napa Valley. The winery was founded in 1900 by Georges and Fernande de Latour. Mrs. De Latour traveled to Rutherford, CA and exclaimed “beau lieu” which translates to “beautiful place”.
It is one of my favorite wineries I have visited in Napa Valley. Their Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is creamy, buttery, full-flavored, and has a solid body. I really enjoyed this wine at
North Woods Inn at the San Gabriel location with my family.
This wine is memorable for its consistent flavor profile and nostalgia I associate with it.
Ultimately, however, (and when I have the extra spending money) I prefer to enjoy the BV Reserve Tapestry Red Blend. It has a harmonious mixture of Bordeaux-heritage grapes and has a complex and exciting taste.
My dream/goal, of course, is to sample the 2007 BV Private Reserve Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon. At $250 and with wine ratings in the 90’s, I’d be the happiest of Grape Gabblers to enjoy this.
