    Complex floral, black cherry, spice and currant aromas lead to a rich, polished, deftly balanced wine offering mature hints of anise and sage, and finishing with a long, lingering aftertaste that's supple and elegant.--California Cabernet '74/'84/'94 retrospective. 13,500 cases made.

    This is one of the finest efforts from Beaulieu in some time. Not since the mid-eighties has BV made a Private Reserve Cabernet with such richness and potential. The wine boasts a dark ruby/purple color, an attractive nose of sweet, toasty new oak, and ripe red and black fruits. In the mouth, there is a layered texture, full-bodied richness, excellent purity, and sweet tannin in the long finish. This wine can be drunk now as well as over the next 15-20 years. Bravo to BV!

    Drinking very nicely. Enjoyable core of earth and tabacco.

    Full and luscious - still incredibly good. Luckily I still have 2 more bottles! I'll drink them soon, because I can't imagine them getting much better.

    Garnet in color. Low rim variation. Fast legs. Blackberry, Black Pepper. Medium bodied. Silky texture. Long finish. Still showing tannins, but good balance of fruit and tannin. Still has a lot of life left, still tasting like a traditional California cab.

    Subdued nose with cedar and a trace of quince. Dark red fruit on the palate with layers of flavor. Medium body with nice finish. Great food wine as the tannins have fully resolved. This still has a long way to go and has gotten better since last tasted a year ago.

    We drank the 1994 Caymus Napa and the 1994 BV Latour side by side with the Kelley's over a nice BBQ dinner. Both wines showed good color, the Caymus was a little cloudy and both had lost some body. The Caymus was a little thin and had a green bell pepper flavor after it was first opened, this flavor faded as the wine opened up. Nothing great - the wine was well past its prime but for being 18 years old it held up. The BV showed a little better, medium body, dried fruit, rutherford dust and a light finish. No oak was left in either bottle.

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.
