About the Red Wine

“One of my favorite wineries, Beau Vigne’s Vineyard sits at a high elevation in the southern Napa Valley, back Soda Canyon Road, overlooking the Pritchard Hill Gap as well as the Stagecoach Vineyard. The AVA for these wines is Atlas Peak and the soils are all volcanic origin. This winery is currently on a qualitative roll.” ~Robert Parker

A true expression of CULT Cabernet Sauvignon and all it is intended to be. First released in 2008 and is culled solely from barrels selected with complex aromatics, voluptuous texture, and purity as well as depth. This is a pure expression of climate and soil with winemaker Julien Fayard nurturing its creation.

Renowned winemaker Julien Fayard uses his expertise to produce wines that express pure, terroir-driven specificities and characteristics. Julien gained his knowledge and defined his core winemaking style from working at grand Chateaux in France such as Lafite Rothschild and Smith Haut Lafitte.

Beau Vigne flies under the radar as a “hidden gem” and small boutique winery producing only a few thousand cases a year. Fans and critics alike flock to the winery for its outstanding wines and genuine hospitality including famed critic Robert Parker who refers to Beau Vigne as “one of my favorite wineries.” 

Beau Vigne’s wines are highly esteemed and cherished among some of the world’s most important winemakers, and they have achieved numerous high-accolades. Today, they are considered among Napa Valley’s most acclaimed wines.

2021 is looking to be one of the vintages of the decade. Vinous Media blessed this year with a 95-98 point score, and said:"Two thousand twenty-one is a fabulous vintage in Napa Valley. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that production is down sharply, 30-50% in many cases. The wines have tremendous energy as well as finesse. In tasting, the 2021s show some of the savory intensity of other drought vintages – 2013 and 2014 come to mind – but with more aromatic explosiveness and greater inner sweetness."

Aging: 20 months in French oak barrels, 65% New Oak 

Tasting notes: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Demonstrates structural intensity, balance with fresh acidity, and über plush tannins all elements that make them very age-worthy but ultra-inviting. Layers of vibrant cassis, black cherry, and black currant interplay with infusions of graphite and sweet tobacco that unfold. The palate displays profound density woven with finessed tannin that transcends to a seemingly endless and intense finish.

Reviews

Powerful yet superbly balanced, this wine achieves the iron fist in a velvet glove expression that makes it appealing in its youth yet bolsters it for more complexity and depth with time. While firmly tannic, the texture still feels elegant. Deep in blackcurrants, cloves and cedar, yet the flavors are fresh and appealing. ~97 Wine Enthusiast

Tightly wound tannins create a motif of powerhouse intensity. Dried herbs, soy sauce, and slate add courage and conviction to the Cult. Black plum increases its complexity, enveloping spiced sandalwood on the finish. ~97 The Tasting Panel Magazine
