Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
There are notes of ripe black currants, black plum, cedar, wet rocks, toasted oak and delicate oak spices. The palate is full bodied and multi-layered with a beautiful harmony between ripe fruit, oak, and earth flavors which reflect the nose. The finish is lengthy and fades slowly. I highly advise waiting until the wine has 7-8 years of bottle age to really discover the true beauty these wines have the ability to show. The fruit will eventually integrate, the savory notes will emerge, and the wine will slowly change and show a personality similar to top Bordeaux with a touch more flesh and texture on the palate. Only time will allow this, so be patient.
Vineyard Notes
The Beauregard Ranch vineyard site was part of an original 160 acre vineyard and apple orchard planted in the early 1900’s. The vineyard was abandoned during prohibition and then resurrected in 1945 when retired Sherrif’s deputy Amos Beauregard purchased the property. It sits at an elevation of 1700 to 1850 feet on a southwest facing slope. Monterey Bay marine influences combine with sandy loam soil to produce wines with minerality and striking acidity. Plantings: Four acres Pinot Noir, clones: Pommard, 667 & 115. One acre Chardonnay, clone 4. Three acres Zinfandel, clone Primitivo. Four acres Cabernet Sauvignon, Dijon clone.
Winemaker Notes
Cabernet ranks one of my most intense wines to make. First of all, the fruit is expensive to grow. Secondly, the amount of new French oak is astoundingly expensive. Then, there are two vintages in barrels, two vintages in bottles, one of which being the vintage being sold. I am holding on to three vintages behind the one I am selling. Quality Cabernet Sauvignon is a major commitment. Cabernet Sauvignon is attractive to me because it encapsulates the vintage for an extended period of time because of its incredible aging potential. I recently enjoyed a 1978 Cabernet from Beauregard Ranch with Erin Brooks from the Wine Advocate. This wine was older than her, and was the vintage that my grandfather grew when I was three years old.
