About

90

"For some reason, the more expensive 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve came across as slightly more earthy and oak-dominated, even though the wood treatment is the same for all of these wines. From a vineyard planted in volcanic soils near Atlas Peak, this wine is rich, well-made and full-bodied, but it is not singing to the same extent as the Juliet and Romeo. Perhaps it is just more restrained and has slightly higher tannin, giving it a firmness the other wines did not possess.

This winery, which is located in the southern part of Napa Valley just off the Silverado Trail in the relatively obscure Soda Canyon area, has fared exceptionally well in 2011. It shows the upper end of how this vintage could fare from certain terroirs where they made a strict selection in the vineyard as well as in the winery. All four of these wines are top-notch efforts in this difficult vintage and Beau Vigne deserves plenty of recognition for what they have achieved."

Product Description:

Winery:
"Beau Vigne (Bo-Veenya) was founded in 2002 by Ed and Trish Snider. We are a small, family winery with a production of about 4,000 cases per year and are known for our Cabernets.

Our vineyard goes by the name of Stags Ridge and is the benchmark and centerpiece of Beau Vigne. Stags Ridge Vineyard & Ranch is located on the Eastern edge of Napa, situated in the Atlas Peak appellation at the very top of Soda Canyon Road overlooking Pritchard Gap, Haystack, and Stagecoach Vineyards.

Beginning with only a few acres of planted vines in 2002, Stag’s Ridge is now comprised of nine acres (eight acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and one acre of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot).

As the Beau Vigne brand has grown, so has the need for exceptional fruit. We have sourced from some of the best vineyards on the North Coast and Napa Valley such as Bacigalupi, Dutton Ranch, and Lewelling to maintain the level of quality our patrons expect from us.

Beau Vigne has a great philosophy to winemaking that hasn’t changed since we began. Although we fly under the radar as a small boutique winery, we do so with impressive stature and enjoy our “hidden gem” status. We are world renown and recognized by wine critics as a winery that produces exceptional, intense, balanced, rich and multidimensional wines. Beau Vigne is home to family and extraordinary wines, where “great Cabernets are grown, not made.”

Our family’s roots run deep in the Napa Valley. Martin Garzoli, Ed’s grandfather, arrived in the Valley in 1913. He was a Swiss Italian who, in Italy, was trained in winemaking. Martin would work the Hayfields of Napa and Sonoma during the day and make wine in an old barn at night. Nearly 100 years later the Beau Vigne Family is still making wine." - Winery
