Buy Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour
Vinous 87 points - Bright ruby-red. Cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate on the slightly medicinal nose; classic Rutherford character. Tightly wound and a bit unyielding, with dark fruit and mint flavors currently dominated by the wine’s rather tough structure.Finishes with chalky tannins and a noticeable greenness.Will this soften with time in bottle? 87+ Points  (Jan 2007)

Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) performed well. It reveals a dense ruby/purple hue along with subtle aromas of vanillin, black currants and damp earth. This medium-bodied, elegant, fully mature 2003 would benefit from more texture and stuffing, but what is there is pure and well-made. It just lacks some personality and richness. It should continue to drink well for a decade.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Spectator 83 points - Medium-bodied, with cedar, anise and sage-laced cherry and berry flavors that fall into the simple-but-pleasing category. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 14,000 cases made. –JL (Oct 31 2006)

Producer
The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. He followed up on this belief by planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistant French vines. The Cabernet Sauvignons that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world its first taste of California’s promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938 de Latour hired the young Russo-French enologist Andre Tchelistcheff, who would become California’s most distinguished winemaker. Tchelistcheff’s knowledge of traditional French techniques and willingness to experiment in local conditions brought BV the Grand Sweepstakes Award at the Golden Gate International Exposition, and led to the creation of Napa Valley’s first reserve wine, Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
