Ed and Trish Snider, owners of Beau Vigne, have three sons and a daughter. Ed was born and raised in the Napa Valley. Ed was the head football coach for St. Helena High School located in the heart of the Napa Valley, a small town of about four thousand. He coached and mentored in the 90’s many young men who now are very involved in the Napa Valley wine industry. Ed and Trish think of many of their players as extended family. The Sniders bought the property in 2002 and named the ranch Stags Ridge Vineyard, a vista overlooking Stags Leap. Stags Ridge is now over eight acres of Cabernet, clone 337 and one acre of Cabernet Franc and petite Verdot (Trish's Garden). Stags Ridge Vineyard sits at about 1,350 feet altitude in the Atlas Peak appellation on the eastern edge of Napa. Stag’s Ridge has become known as a very unique vineyard recognized in the valley as a very special place. You know you have a great vineyard when The Top Cabernet cult labels inquire about purchasing our little piece of Heaven, and we have to keep telling them, "Not for sale." We know what a special vineyard we have (and so do they!). Read less

I liked this wine. Fruity berries and loads of raspberries, a favorite of mine, with a little bit of a spicy cinnamon. A medium lingering finish for a smooth ending.

Beau Vigne's vineyard sits atop Stag's Leap in the Foss Valley, producing a small intense berries full of blackberry, currant and tobacco leaf. Characteristics of the rocky soil and terroir are similiar to those of the Paulliac region of France. The owners of Beau Vigne are Ed & Trish Snider. Ed’s family has been making wine in Italy for several hundred years. The "Garzoli" family made wine for the "Dodg" of Florence. This was a very prestigious position and Ed felt the pull to make a great wine. Beau Vigne is truly a life’s passion. So the Garzoli tradition of winemaking continues. The winemaker Dave Phinney is a hot new winemaker. He makes Mercury Head, The Prisoner, Beau Vigne amongst others. He is a rising star who was trained at Opus One and at Whitehall Lane. He has the background necessary to develop Beau Vigne’s French Clone 337 into a big complex Cabernet.

Beau Vigne Juliet Cabernet Sauvignon Napa This is our 3rd vintage of this magnificent Stag's Leap Cabernet. Made from tiny berries the Juliet is a gorgeously lush, delicious wine with ideal balance of density and liveliness. Irresistible
