Winemakers Note

For more than 100 years, Beaulieu Vineyard has set the standard for rich, classic Napa Valley wines. Blessed with a remarkable terroir, BV crafts wines using a combination of traditional techniques and modern technology to coax out the fullest expression of the vineyard. Nowhere is this more evident than in Georges de Latour Private Reserve. The first cult wine of Napa, Georges de Latour Private Reserve was born in the spring of 1936 when a record frost devastated the region. The grapes that year were few in number but bold in flavor. Highly concentrated, beautifully structured, this wine was BV’s unforgettable debut. Sourced to this day from the same “Rutherford Dust” as that legendary vintage, it is still the benchmark for Napa Valley Cabernet. « For most of this century, BV’s Private Reserve Cabernet was the most famous, among the most pretigious wines produced in California. » James Laube, Wine Spectator CLIMATE CONDITIONS Much-needed winter rains ended the drought in the region. Warm Labor Day weekend temperatures led to early ripening and smaller yields, but conditions were perfect for high flavor concentration and color saturation. TASTING NOTES: Opens with aromas of dark plum, black currant, delicate violet, and black pepper spice. Robust flavors of blackberry, cassis and molasses linger on the palate with accents of vanilla, caramel, and baking spice. The Rutherford Dust famous in this region is evident in the wine’s dis tinct earthy streak and cocoa powder coming through on the nose and tannin texture.
