2005 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Clone 6
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml

"Beaulieuís limited production clonal studies include two wines I tasted. These are limited bottlings designed to showcase the primary clones of Cabernet that go into their top wines. They will probably benefit from long-term aging and tasting, as opposed to reviews that appear in five or ten years time. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 6 is a more earthy, meaty wine, with loads of dark fruits, perhaps not the stunning purity of the Clone 4 in terms of cassis, but the extra dimension of spice, earth, licorice are different. In any event, both of these are key components of the Private Reserve, and as they follow the course of their relatively long lives, the 2005 Clone 6 looks capable of lasting another 10-15 years. It seems on a slightly faster evolutionary track than the Clone 4." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Jun 28, 2015)
