Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

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.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

An extraordinary wine, dense, rich and earthy, with broad, plush tannins and tiers of complex currant, earth, cedar, black cherry, mineral and anise flavors. Keeps a tight focus on the long, rich, detailed aftertaste. 17,000 cases made.

At the peak !!! Great win, elegant, vivid, this wine really impressed me, blueberry notes, full-body and incredible retro-taste.

had with hockey Parents in Santa Rosa over Meat Pizza Good color and clarity, a little light in body, soft from the start with light fruit front start to finish. Easy drinking, could last another two years and be the same. Not going to get better.

Another winner - by far the best bottle of this wine I've had (and I've had at least eight bottles before this). This is a shining example of a Napa Cabernet at its best. It doesn't gang-tackle your palette, but seduces with its soft, profound subtle cherry cola and cinnamon flavor profile. This Napa Valley icon is generally agreed to be one of the greatest wines ever produced in the Golden State, and I feel privileged to have enjoyed it. The producer has been making this wine for more than 100 years, and this vintage is considered its masterpiece. Anyone who loves wine, has heard of wine or can spell "wine" should buy a bottle immediately before it's gone. Don't miss this experience. Drinkable now, and to 2018 and beyond.
