Good full red with ruby highlights. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, cherry, strawberry and cedar. Opulent and thick but very young, with an element of inner-mouth floral lift I did not find in the 2006. Here the substantial, firm tannins are sweeter, allowing the berry and floral flavors to linger and build. Stambor describes this as a better-structured version of the 1997. Certainly the best vintage for this wine in recent years.

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.
