Vintage 2012
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Rutherford
Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor
The Maestro Collection celebrates the long tradition of innovation and excellence that legendary Beaulieu Vineyard winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, referred to as the "Maestro," started in 1938. The grapes for this wine are sourced from Beaulieu Vineyard Ranch No. 1. This wine showcases the powerful briary aromas and flavors of our traditional Napa Valley Cabernet. 

Tasting Notes

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.

Vineyard Note

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.
