Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750mL

*All wine is sold in the latest year's vintage

 

Our Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon has been widely recognized as the benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford since its inaugural vintage in 1936. Our understanding of terroir comes from more than 100 years of creating rich, classic Napa Valley wines. Our legacy honors the marriage between state-of-the-art technology and gentle, traditional winemaking methods, a combination that enhances the expression of our remarkable vineyards.

Aeration brings out floral top notes, raspberry and a hint of blood orange. There is plenty of depth, but the tannins are finer than they were a few years ago. Shorter time on the skins and a reduction in barrel fermentations really allow the pedigree of these Rutherford sites to come through. 

Since 1936, the "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve has been sourced from the first two Rutherford properties that Georges de Latour purchased on the west side of Highway 29. They were chosen because they are at the widest part of Napa Valley and have the advantage of a little more sunshine as well as gravelly soils with volcanic deposits. Year after year this wine shows its classic "Rutherford dust" terroir and the 2000 is no exception.
