Food Pairings for Beau Vigne Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve
My goodness, what a nice bottle of wine! Was recommended by my local wine merchant and I couldn't have been happier. Had it with beef rouladen for Christmas. Wonderfully smooth and balanced with great fruit, soft tannins and a 30 seconds plus finish. Best cabernet I ever had, hands down!
[96 pts Robert Parker] Absolutely profound is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve which clearly puts Beau Vigne alongside the Shafer Hillside Select Cabernet as one of the stars of Stags Leap. A wine of great intensity exceptional power and admirable grace as well as equilibrium this full-bodied 2006 offers beautifully sweet creme de cassis licorice spice box and toasty oak characteristics. Multidimensional with a layered mid-palate and a finish that lasts 45+ seconds it will benefit from some bottle age although it is accessible enough to be drunk now. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This small boutique operation (nine acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and one acre of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) sits on a knoll in the Stags Leap viticultural area. [470 cases made.]
