Bv Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Beaulieu Vineyards famous Napa Cabernet. From the super 2007 vintage, Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor blends 84% Cabernet Sauvignon with 11% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot and Malbec. From sites throughout Napa Valley, but primarily the BV Rutherford and Calistoga Ranches. The wine was aged 18 months in oak barrels, 50% American, 24% French and 26% Hungarian, for a richer texture and a well-integrated new oak component. The 2006 garnered well-deserved praise and 90+ scores. This 2007 is worthy successor with dark cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, hints of chocolate and toasty oak weave through an enticing and mouthfilling texture, finishing with lingering spice.

WA 90pts. - According to Robert Parker: The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford exhibits cedar, coffee and dark berry notes along with a dense ruby/purple color, a nice texture and a style that is somewhat of a throwback to the BV Cabernet Sauvignons made in the sixties and seventies. With pure fruit as well as an endearing texture, this is a beautiful wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. Despite being owned by a huge international corporation, BV appears to be returning to the glorious form it exhibited in the fifties, sixties and early seventies. That was noticeable with several of the wines I reviewed last year.
