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 read more... 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. Varietal: 100% Cabernet Appellation: 100% Napa Valley Alcohol: 14.2% Aging Potential: Up to 20 years
