The sense of balance and grace is sublime as layers of cassis plum and cinnamon keep unfolding. The chewy finish is lengthy and elegant and it should be held for no less than five years.

A strong effort from Beaulieu the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautifully sweet nose of spicy oak intermixed with black cherries and currants. Full-bodied rich pure and concentrated it combines restraint and elegance with power and muscle. It will age well for two decades. While Beaulieu is no longer one of California's cutting edge wineries this is classic stuff. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2020.
