El Cajon Wine Tasting Notes 1/2/15-1/3/15

The BV Tasting

Let’s welcome in the new year with a flight of wines from an old friend and one of California’s best-known winemakers: Beaulieu Vineyard. The rich legacy of Beaulieu Vineyard began with Georges de Latour’s vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival the finest wines of his native France and his pioneering role in California winemaking.

We’ll start off with cool-climate coastal Merlots and Cabernet Sauvignon before moving into a classic Rutherford Cab from Napa. The always highly rated Tapestry will follow and we’ll finish with a zesty, peppery Zinfandel.

We think you’ll find these wines not only tasty but also great values so join your fellow tasters and host Bill Callahan, who will provide a tasty spread of cheeses, crackers and meats to accompany these fine wines.
