The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve performed significantly better than it did seven years ago. Spicy oak and new saddle leather characteristics lead to dusty, loamy soil, cherry and cassis notes. The wine reveals terrific balance as well as a hint of French oak (BV is no longer using American oak as it did in the 1970's, 1960's and 1950's). This is intense, with some minerality as well as sweet tannins and abundant fruit, glycerin and richness. I was stunned by how well this cuvee is currently showing. It is capable of lasting another two decades. My initial assessment of this wine was unquestionably incorrect.

Deeply hued with thin slightly colored legs. Simple cherry, cassis, and strong but deftly rendered oak aromas. Moderately tannic with good levels of acidity and a short finish. This wine is subdued in all facets and is a considerable surprise in Napa Valley?s ostentatious and forward 2002 vintage. Distinctly Rutherford in origin but it is disappointing given this wine?s laudable history.
