This wine exhibits immense concentration and structure while retaining simplicity and grace
Since 1900, Beaulieu Vineyard has crafted benchmark Cabernets, including the Napa Valley’s first Private Reserve wine, Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon. Our winery was made famous through the wines of iconic Winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, whose legacy is carried on through our fourth Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor. Selected from the some of our most expressive blocks and fully barrel fermented, this wine is a tribute to Mr. Tchelistcheff, as it is anchored by fruit from the historic BV No. 1 and BV No. 2 – vineyards he first identified as the most exceptional in our Rutherford holdings. Crafted by winemaker Jeffrey Stambor and Blend Consultant Michel Rolland, this wine exhibits immense concentration and structure while retaining simplicity and grace, and of course our trademark “Rutherford Dust.”

It's an exciting time to be a winemaker at Beaulieu Vineyard, and I'm especially proud of the care we've taken to improve our historic Rutherford estate. Our vineyards are a rich source of inspiration, the creative spark that helps us guide our wines to reveal the distinctive flavor and personality of each terroir.
