Balances savoury herbs, cedar and earthy loam with plump, ripe black fruit and cassis. Fine complexity, integrated tannins and a succulent finish. Not at all showy, it earns its mark through finesse and great balance. (LM)$105

The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is not the biggest, richest, most formidable example of this cuvee yet it possesses a beautifully restrained, balanced elegance that is neither pushed nor contrived. The color is a healthy dark ruby/plum and the nose offers up notes of underbrush, loamy soil and earth. The fruit veers toward red and blackberries, and the wine is close to full maturity. It is soft enough to be drunk now, but its impeccable balance will propel it over the next 10-15 years.

Hits of Blackberry, coffee, oak. An excellent wine. Decanted for 30 minutes, improved as it opened up.

Georges de Latour is the classic, original "Reserve" California wine, reflecting many decades of experience with some of Napa Valley's most historic vineyards. This wine was aged for 21 months in oak. Hand-harvested fruit, whole berries, careful but vigorous extraction during fermentation and gentle handling throughout the winemaking process yield a stunning wine for the ages.
The 2004 vintage of this extraordinary wine offers intense aromas of black fruits, mocha, toast and briar. It is full bodied, with rich, mouth-filling tannins and deeply concentrated black currant, vanilla and anise flavors. This vintage will require seven to nine years of aging to reach maturity, yet tastes fine now — an excellent example of the vintage.
