Winemakers Note

Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, a reference in Napa Valley Wine Beaulieu Vineyard Reserve wines are handcrafted from the finest grapes of the vintage, focusing on its premier estates in Rutherford, Carneros, and other Napa Valley appellations. For more than 100 years, Beaulieu Vineyard has set the benchmark for rich, classic Napa Valley wines. Its legacy honors the marriage between state-of-the-art technology and gentle, traditional winemaking methods, a combination that enhances the expression of its remarkable vineyard terroir. Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been widely recognized as the benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford since its inaugural vintage in 1936. Beaulieu's understanding of terroir comes from more than 100 years of creating rich, classic Napa Valley wines. 2019 vintage Trevor Durling, Beaulieu's winemaker, tells you about this vintage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9QMM58a3XE Harvest started later than previous years due to February rains. Spring continued wet with some rain during flowering, followed by cool temperatures that allowed the grapes to mature gradually. Most ripened at lower sugars, thanks to the extended, cool growing season, providing full flavors, fresh acidity, and superb balance. Tasting notes This vintage is truly exemplary, with a nuanced, exuberant nose. Full-bodied with tremendous concentration and power, the broad palate is multilayered with enticing flavors of dark black cherry, red currant, cocoa nib, amaretto, espresso, and graphite. Signature “Rutherford Dust” tannins add a fine cocoa-powder texture, with a long lift and persistent finish. The mouthwatering palate is supple and fresh, with balanced acidity, demonstrating classically elegant, luscious, and alluring character. Incredibly drinkable upon release in its youth and highly cellarable for many years to come. 100pts by James Suckling "Wow! This is the new 1974 George de Latour, which was a legend"
