Date night with Anne-Marie. We were introduced to this wine by @Martin G Rivard. So consistent, and in our opinion, under the radar. Lovely poise and balance, with restrained power. Loving this and my wife tonight.

Good for $50.00, but come on@Eric Shanks
Re taste those beau vigne wines blind next time or while sober,🚼 definitely would buy again, just doesn't have that smooth, thick & viscousness of the Cult or Guest cottage,
Glad
@Eric Shanks mentioned them though

Popped and poured. A HUGE value in Napa.from their 100 point Reserve to their everyday drinker. Opened after 2 big reds and it drank better than 1 of them......p.s insignia 🍷😜🍷

Wow! Pop and pour deliciousness. Opened this up while cooking. Big mistake. Became so enamored by the wine I forgot what I was doing with the food. (The 15.9 abv didn't help either 😱). This is so good. Huge fruit on the nose and palate. Black cherries, vanilla, brown sugar. Sweet tannins and silly smooth. While not quite as full bodied or with same viscosity as their other wines - this is still amazing. I'm going all in on the Beau Vigne train. @Martin G Rivard what can I say? As HFIC you know what's good! And this is great!

Reserves and Estates showed up today so had so open something Beau Vigne. This is probably the best entry wine of anything I drink. Massive, decadent, but balanced. Great black molasses finish.

Absolutely stunning. Purchased at auction. So well structured. Provides all the snob-value, without the checkout nosebleed πŸ‘ƒπŸΎ

The misses wasn't partial to the Pax so opened this to appease. For a entry level wine I think this hangs tough with their upper labels like the Reserve and Cult. Carmel/Vanilla/Cinnamon nose. Bold palate of dark fruit, roasted apricots, and earth. This will sell out stadiums in 5 years with club seat prices.
