94 Points Limited new Cabernet from Beau Vigne! previous vintage 94 Points Robert Parker: "There are 354 cases of the Cabernet Sauvignon Romeo, which has 2% Petit Verdot added in. A fabulous nose of creosote, charcoal embers, blackberry and cassis jumps up from this dense purple wine. It displays full body, superlative equilibrium, sweet tannin, a layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel and a terrific finish of close to 40+ seconds. Already delicious, this will continue to evolve handsomely for another 15-20 years..... ...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."
