Beaulieu Vineyard Rarity Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 1.5L2013 Rarity comes from our finest barrel-lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, selected from our oldest vines in predominantly BV Ranches No. 1 and 2. Georges de Latour originally planted these vineyards in the early 1900s. Rarity has only been produced in exceptional vintages ('68, '73, '79, '90). TASTING NOTES The Beaulieu Vineyard 2013 Rarity delivers massive power and weight, yet with uncommon elegance and suppleness. The wine’s profuse aromas of blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and violet are mirrored by the opulent flavors that explode on the palate. Seamlessly integrated vanilla and oak spice nuances, from barrel fermentation and aging in entirely new barrels, add even more complexity to the layered Cabernet Sauvignon expression. “Rutherford Dust” tannins contribute texture, while bright acidity keeps its fresh, purity of focus. This is a wine that will age for decades. VINTAGE While Napa Valley winemakers heralded the 2012 vintage as outstanding, the 2013 vintage was—magnificent! The unusually warm, dry winter promoted early budbreak, which gave the vines an early start to the 2013 growing season. Ideal conditions prevailed through flowering, fruit set and ripening, with the low rainfall keeping the grapes desirably small. While harvest was early, the bloom-to-harvest span was not compressed; thus, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes benefited from adequate hangtime to develop exceptionally ripe, balanced flavors. VINEYARD The 2013 Rarity was chosen from the “best of the best” barrel-lots of wine from the outstanding vintage. Through a highly selective process, we narrowed the components for the Rarity blend to represent predominantly old vines in four vineyards: BV Ranch No. 1 and No. 2; our Hewitt Estate Vineyard; and a neighboring small vineyard at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The vines, with the majority planted in the 1980s, were grafted to clones that yield small, intensely flavored grapes. All four vineyards are deeply rooted in well-draining, alluvial fan soils on the western bench-lands of Napa Valley’s Rutherford AVA. WINEMAKING At the winery, we hand sorted first the clusters and then the destemmed grapes to retain only the highest quality fruit. For early integration of oak character and to enhance the supple mouthfeel, 56 percent of the Rarity components were barrel-fermented, with the balance in stainless steel and wood tanks. Following 30 to 35-days of maceration (skin contact) and gentle pressing in a basket press, the wine was returned to barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. To balance he tremendous intensity of dark fruit character, we chose to age this wine in 100 percent new barrels. Michel Rolland, who has consulted for Beaulieu Vineyard for nearly a decade, blended the wine components with Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor in January 2015, thus giving the wine t ime to marry before it was bottled in August 2015. Ten percent Petit Verdot from BV Ranch #1 added even more structure and complexity to the Cabernet Sauvignon blend.
Venge Scout's Honor 2015This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super-ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coating deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra long finish with a touch of barrel tannin at the end. 2015 Scout's Honor is certainly a generous mouthful of red wine that we recommend be opened and enjoyed immediately upon release. Cellared correctly it will age for 5 to 8 years.

Behrens Family Winery Sainte Fumée Red Wine 2013Each wine is a low tech labor of love: crushed into one-ton T-bins, punched down by hand, gently transferred to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. One only has to look at Les and Lisa's hands during harvest to know their wines are truly "hand-crafted." The couple also gravitates toward small, interesting and low-yielding vineyard sites, working with growers who they know, like and trust, and who are as obsessive about quality as they are. For Les and Lisa, it's all about letting the vineyards steal the show, and allowing the wines to speak for themselves.
