2013 Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1228550 90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark One of the measures of a very good vintage is how the year's affordable wines perform, and this one makes a very good case that 2013 in Napa Valley was a very fine harvest for Cabernet Sauvignon. It leads with a classic varietal nose of cassis, loamy soil and sweetening notes of toast, and its well-defined flavors follow suit with an impression of precision and fruity depth that is all too rare at the price. So, too, does it earn high marks for its fleshy mouthfeel and careful balance, and, while it is eminently enjoyable right now, it will age gracefully for five or six years. Inner quote mark (8/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford, usually a reasonably good value, offers plenty of fragrant cedar wood, fruitcake, and blackcurrants. It has loads of crème de casiss, full body, hard tannins, and some oak in the background. It is still slightly firm and coiled tight, but promising. I would give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is soft, pliant and accessible, with lovely mid-palate depth and balance. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon are some of the many notes that grace the silky finish. Drink this attractive entry-level Cabernet over the next handful of years. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
