96 Points Limited new Cabernet from Beau Vigne! 96 Points Robert Parker: "Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon with a 2% splash of Cabernet Franc, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Cult is a little closed to begin, giving way to very youthful blackcurrants, blackberries and warm plums notes plus touches of pencil shavings, spice box, garrigue, black olives and a waft of cinnamon stick. The palate is full, very firm and very fresh with loads of black and blue fruit layers, finishing long and earthy. 425 cases produced... ...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 of volcanic origin. The top-notch consulting winemaker is none other than Kirk Venge. The 2014s are terrific, more fruit-forward follow-ups to their magnificent 2013s and dramatic 2012s, as this winery is currently on a qualitative roll."
