A perfect example of "an iron fist in a velvet glove", the Beaulieu Vineyard 2016 Rarity delivers incredible power and weight, combining finesse, elegance and rich supple texture into one extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon. Bursting with dark blackberry and cassis on the nose, elements of roast coffee come through on the palate with dense flavors of blackcurrant and cassis, alongside notes of anise, dark chocolate and crushed violets. Fully integrated "Rutherford Dust" tannins go on infinitely, while bright acidity keeps purity of fruit the focus. 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. This showstopper finishes with grace and complexity, leaving everlasting flavors of blackberry and sarsaparilla on the finish. A timeless wine, cellar-worthy for decades.

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.
