Elegant and classic, our Beaulieu Vineyard Ranch No. 1 Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux style blend from our historic vineyard in Rutherford. Cabernet Sauvignon, the core of the blend, contributes deep blackberry and cassis expression with muscular tannins. Merlot brings vibrancy to the bright fruit aromas, adds notes of mocha and fills out the expansive flavors with luscious texture. Finally, Petit Verdot brings a violet element and enhances the blend’s firm structure. This wine, although delicious now, will reward bottle aging with even greater complexity. Pair it with an equally classic entrée, such as filet mignon with wild mushroom sauce.
Encompassing the original Georges de Latour
Estate, which was first planted in the early 1900s
and is still owned by Latour’s descendants, this
80-acre property has a variety of alluvial fan soils
that foster exceptional quality in Bordeauxstyle
varietals. The intensity of this wine comes
from the small-berry Cabernet Sauvignon
clusters of UC Davis clones 4 and 6 and INRA
(French) clone 337. Well draining, gravelly loam
soils allow deep rooting and the development of
complex flavors in the grapes.
