Medium-dark ruby-garnet color. Full, gingery, berry-cassis and mineral bouquet, showing good fruit concentration and maturity. Full, sinewy flavors reveal good extract and weight of fruit backed by fine tannins and low acidity. There is a lot of class here, though the structure is evidenced by the firm, slightly dry finish. 3% Merlot included. Needs time.

About This Producer

In 1900, when Georges de Latour's wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it "beau lieu," or "beautiful place." Shortly thereafter, de Latour sold his thriving cream of tartar business, bought the four-acre ranch and founded Beaulieu Vineyard with the vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival those of his native France. Today the winery continues to turn to innovative practices to craft wines in a bold, classic style. They have become a leader in clonal research, and the BV Clone Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon wines are highly acclaimed. Most recently a new state-of-the-art winery was completed within one of the original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional, wine-the longtime benchmark of Rutherford Cabernet.
