2008 Beaulieu Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Having recently reviewed the 2008 Beaulieu Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon we decide to also review the 2008 Beaulieu Vineyards Rutherford Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. There isn’t a lot of difference in the wineshop price for these two wines with the Rutherford being the more expensive, winery price is about a $10.00 difference. Three of us tasted this wine and we felt it was a little better than the Napa Valley Cabernet. It had a dark ruby color with a nose of dark stone fruits. While very similar to the Napa Valley Cabernet the Rutherford had more complex flavors and a lighter body. Very smooth tannins with a moderate finish. Very easy drinking.
