2016 Beaulieu Vineyard Private Reserve Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

The 2016 vinatge marks the 80th anniversary bottling of Rutherford's staple Cabernet Sauvignon, Beaulieu Vineyard's iconic Private Reserve Georges de Latour Cabernet made to honor the winery's legacy in breaking ground and producing quality Cabernet Sauvignon in the 'New World". To showcase it's bold and rich history, we hand selected grapes from the finest Cabernet Sauvignon vines from the western bench of the Rutherford AVA in our iconic BV Ranches No. 1 and No. 2, originally planted by Georges de Latour in the early 1900s. We focused on clonal selections (6, 4, 169, 5197, 7 and 8), which yield small berries with the high skin-to-juice ratio needed to make intense, long-lived wines. The fruit was handpicked and optically sorted once it arrived to the winery in order to ensure the highest quality selection. These chosen vines are deeply rooted in the well-draining alluvial fan soils of Rutherford, considered one of the finest regions of Napa Valley for Cabernet Sauvignon.

2016 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

The 2016 Private Reserve Cabernet is a highly acclaimed wine year after year made in the heart of St. Helena coming from a legendary pedigriy of winemakers and fruit from some of Napa's oldest Cabernet vineyards. This 2016 bottle was awarded 99 points just as the 2015 vintage earned the year prior. The 2016 vintage is a true expression of what high quality vitrification and unique winemaking techniques are capable of producing. The fruit was specially chosen and hand picked bunches to which come from the Steinhauer Ranch (40%), Bancroft Ranch (15%) and Pauli (5%) vineyards atop Howell Mountain each to provide the foundation for the 2016 blend. Exceptional fruit from the Gamble Ranch in Oakville (15%), along with St. Helena’s Home Vineyard (10%) and Chabot Vineyard (10%) join contributions from Mount Veeder’s Lampyridae Vineyard (5%). Each lot is closely watched during the ripening period to determine ideal pick time. Grapes for the 2016 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested between September 16th and October 20th.

2016 Sterling Vineyards Iridium Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is the signature variety of the Napa Valley and the appellation excels in producing outstanding expressions of this admired varietal. Napa Valley offers an ideal combination of topography, geology and climate that enables Cabernet Sauvignon to reach optimum ripeness, balance and finesse. And within the valley, there are exceptional vineyards and sub-appellations that produce some of the finest expressions of this noble grape. In Vintage 2016, winemaker Harry Hansen has selected notable lots from vineyards spanning Napa from South to North, including the Meigs Vineyard, Moore Ranch, Sleeping Lady Vineyard in Yountville and Calistoga’s Frediani Vineyard. The vineyards offer soils ranging from clay to tufa, with a variety of clones, exposures and ages, including older head trained vines.
