Delightfully pure and flavorful, with generous plum, blueberry and blackberry notes, framed by solid yet friendly tannins. Most impressive on the finish, where the flavors sail on. Best from 2014 through 2025. 7,400 cases made. -JL The strongest vintage since the 2007 is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour. This beautifully ripe wine boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of cassis, kirsch, cedarwood, foresty and background vanilla notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and moderately high tannins. Given the richer fruit concentration, the tannins are easily balanced and do not interfere with currant drinkability or the potential for the wine to be cellared for two decades or more. It's young, dry, tight and tannic, although there's obviously a core of ripe black currant and cherry fruit. To evaluate this wine properly, you have to know its history as one of Napa's most ageable Cabernets. Still, it's not a gr...

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers mint spices licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu s 2010s are ripe and flashy the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last y

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is nearly opaque black-ruby with purple highlights. The aromas show dark fruits, licorice, black pepper and minerals, with Rutherford accents of black olive, peppercorn and dark cherry. Full-bodied in texture, this wine has pronounced, dense and concentrated flavors of black currant, anise, sweet vanilla and distinctive minerality. The rich tannins are balanced by medium acidity providing freshness. Full of character, this vintage will require 7 to 9 years aging to reach maturity, yet tastes fine now; it is an excellent example of the vintage. Pairings: Pairs well with roast beef, leg of lamb, Fontina, Stilton or Montgomery's Cheddar cheeses. orange dotted line Winemaking Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon showcases our best fruit, primarily derived from the original BV vineyards in Rutherford, now enhanced by a high percentage of unique clones with stronger flavors, like Clone 6, Clone 4 and Clone 337. These vineyards and a few others in Oakville and St. Helena are moderate- to low-yielding sites with gravelly-loam soils and ideal drainage for Cabernet Sauvignon. Vintage Notes The 2003 vintage was a season of contrasts—a cool wet spring, then warm late May, cool June-July and wet August, followed by heat waves in September-October leading to a late harvest finale in November! The even pace of harvest allowed us to pick fruit at optimum maturity. The quality of the late-picked grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent. The extended summer-like weather in fall was ultimately the key factor in producing high quality fruit this vintage. Varietal: 100% Cabernet Appellation: 100% Napa Valley Alcohol: 14.2% Aging Potential: Up to 20 years
