($115; includes 7% petit verdot) Good deep red-ruby. Classic cabernet aromas of cassis, violet and licorice. Silky and suave on entry, then supple and sweet in the middle, with a fruit character that's very ripe without showing any dried fruit notes. The dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors support the substantial tannins. This weighs in at 15.1% alcohol but does not come off as hot. Finishes with very good persistence.

Clearly a 95+ point wine. Opened for 2+ hours before drinking. Beautiful musty nose. However, a bold, massive rounded dark ink flavor when consumed. Long finish. Notes of cocoa, dark fruit, graphite with lots of depth and layers.

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.
