Mint and eucalyptus scents dominate this wine when first opened; it needs a day of air for the tannins to relent. The narrowly defined cherry fruit opens further with another day of air, now reading as sleek and layered, with the mint as a back note and luscious extract to the fore. It's elegant in a full-blown Napa Valley way, and best aged eight to ten years from the vintage.
Beaulieu is most known for its Private Reserve Cab, but in a way, the Rutherford Cab shows what the winery can do on an everyday basis. It’s always balanced and controlled, elegant and dry. This vintage shows all those qualities, with ripe black currant fruit.
