Georges de Latour Napa Valley Beaulieu Vineyard Private Reserve 1999
Tasted this wine after having some Nebbiolo from Baja California. So, I can't say that my opinion was pristine. The wine was full-bodied and easy to drink. Not terribly fruity (which I liked) and with mellow tannins. Heck it has 14 years on it. So, the tannins should be quite civilized. US$61.99 at Wine Club, Santa Ana in 2003.Add winemaker's notes

Just received 6 half bottles and wanted to try one, forgoing any bad expectations of the 'bottle shock' phenomenon. Super deep dark garnet color. A great intense nose of camphor, dusty dark fruits, and cassis. On the palate there is nice dark currant with an amazingly bold cassis, probably the most I have ever encountered. Smooth but bold tannins with an evenly balanced acid level give this a great mouth feel. A 60 second aftertaste brings it all home.Happy with the way this showed, especially since my last experience (CLONYC GdL Vertical last September) where the 99 as was so-so, particularly since tonight’s was from a half bottle.
consistent with previous 2 bottles.
External Reviews for Georges de Latour Napa Valley Beaulieu Vineyard Private Reserve
This age-old classic begins with sawdust aromas and hints of mint and green bean. Broad plum, berry and vanilla flavors spread across the wide-open palate, followed by a finish of mocha and coffee... on the sweet side, with fairly aggressive oak, yet it manages to shine and strut its stuff. Still, more definition and delicacy would elevate it further.
Beaulieu's flagship wine does not have the volume of the best vintages, but it is still a beautiful wine, oozing black currant and cigar-box flavors. The dusty tannins create a lush, velvety texture that diplays great balance and charm.
Marked by hints of sweet oak, spice, herb, tobacco and chocolate up front. Powdery tannins support bright raspberry, blackberry, sage and thyme flavors. Howerver, acidity is on the bright side and clashes slightly with the tannins.
Classic Georges, balanced and ageworthy, yet riper and lusher than any Private Reserve in memory. Magnificently ripe fruit, rich in currants and cocoa, well-oaked, with sweet, complex tannins. Doesn't try to out-wow the competition in power, but the equilibrium is its strong point. Now through 2015.

A strong effort from Beaulieu, the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautifully sweet nose of spicy oak intermixed with black cherries and currants. Full-bodied, rich, pure, and concentrated, it combines restraint and elegance with power and muscle. It will age well for two decades.
Rich and structured, overflowing with plum and green olive character. Full-bodied and chewy, with loads of tannins and a long finish. Needs time. Best after 2001.
