International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 150

($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.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 186

While the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is the strongest wine made at Beaulieu in many years, it is eclipsed by the 2007. The 2006 Georges de Latour exhibits a dense inky/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of graphite, licorice, charcoal, creme de cassis, and sweet cherries. Deep, ripe, and full-bodied with powerful tannins, admirable structure, and superb depth, it will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age, and should be drinkable over the following 25+ years.

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.
