Beau Vigne 2017 Legacy Cabernet presentation is hallmark Beau Vigne Cabernet Sauvignon. A true reflection of that signature Rutherford dust, this Cabernet Sauvignon embodies a new world style. Legacy Cabernet Sauvignon is hand crafted entirely from Rutherford fruit. Exhibiting rich characteristics of dark complex fruits, minerality and balanced intensity, the layers of this wine truly reflect the vineyard’s terroir.
A bold, fruit forward Cabernet this wine opens with the sweetness of raisins, prunes and vanilla. Black currant presents a rich profile of dark black fruit and bing cherry. We’re in the sweet spot with this one. The palate is a berry pie full of strawberries, blueberries, cherry, and spices. The perfect combination of power and finesse, there is a nice viscosity in the mouth with a tapered finish. It drinks well right now but has 5-8 years of ageability. All the inimitable Cabernet flavors abound, with a healthy dose of coffee grounds, dusty tannin and wise mature notes.
