The best way to experience Beau Vigne is to visit Beau Vigne.
"One of my favorite wineries, Beau Vigne's 10-acre Vineyard sits at a high 1,650-Foot 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. The top-notch consulting winemaker is none other than Kirk Venge. The 2014's are terrific more fruit-forward follow-ups to their magnificent 2013's and dramatic 2012's, as this winery is currently on a qualitative roll"
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot
eau Vigne Barrel Chaser is a refined and very pleasurable wine. It is quick to begin with a beautiful fragrance of red flower potpourri, cherry preserves, light mocha, espresso bean and cola berry. With time to open up, further brooding baking aromas of allspice, clove, cotton candy sugar, vanilla extract and nutmeg appear. The palate is bold and broad with tongue swirling flavors of dried cherry, currants, white pepper and hints of sweet tobacco. The tannins are firm and held snugly in place with a lace-up of vibrant acidity that carries the complexities of the mid palate to a lengthy finish.
