Beaulieu Vineyard Rarity Numbered Magnum 2016
|California, Napa Valley, Rutherford
Station Plaza Wine
Tasted with Trevor Durling, Chief Winemaker and GM of BV at 10 cubed, the 100th Fl of Central Park Tower. This wine is amazing. Plenty of fruit yet well rounded with old world qualities, almost held back a little - but in a good way. We tasted in next to the 2013 Rarity, which I also tasted with Trevor in 2017 and gave it prefect 100. I feel like we need to adjust the curve with this wine because its off the charts. Blackberry, plumb, cassis, strawberry and blueberry pie - then very slight earthy / summer garden / cool breeze feel. There really is a lot going on here and you get a lot of layers. We had it open about 2+ hours and it was singing.
