Beaulieu Vineyard Private Reserve Georges de Latour Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$129.99

98 Points - new release                           A legendary Napa Cabernet- new release! The superb 2016 vintage gave the Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon its unctuous fruit character and dense structure. Hugely complex, the wine reveals a broad spectrum of briary blackberry, black cherry and currant notes, with nuances of violet and bittersweet chocolate. Muscular tannins support the plush, expansive palate, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy. 98 Points James Suckling: "A complex red with blackcurrants, forest floor and mint. Eucalyptus, too. Love the aromas. Full body with ripe tannins that roll on the palate. Very harmonious and precise. Needs four to five years to come together, but already a joy to taste."

2 hour decant ( little, if any, cloudy sediment). A majestic dark purple garnet color. On the nose: very aromatic with blackberry, plum, floral, chocolate coffee, wet earth. Taste: smooth, rich medium body wine with blueberry, blackberry, cassis, oak, spice and a pencil lead/plum medium plus long dry finish. Still young, with slightly bitter tannins that want some more time in the bottle for a higher score.

The George De Latour always delivers an exceptional glass of wine! The last bottle we had was in 2012 ( a gift from our good friend Charlie) after a 60 day cleanse and then as now it delivers that special quality we all want from a glass of wine. PERFECT! Anniversary Trip to Palm Springs!
