Beau Vigne Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

[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.]

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

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!
