Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Handcrafted with cutting-edge winemaking worthy of our highest quality grapes, the 2009 vintage boasts exceptionally powerful yet elegant flavors. The highly saturated aromas and expansive, richly textured flavors brim with deep blackberry and cassis expression.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) At our state-of-the-art winery, dedicated exclusively to Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, we hand sorted the grapes first as clusters and then as destemmed berries to retain only the highest quality fruit. We then fermented 30 percent of the must in new French oak barrels for early and seamless integration of oak aromas and flavors. This technique also enhanced the dense, rich texture and gave suppleness to the muscular tannins, while retaining long aging potential. Following extended skin contact, in-barrel malolactic fermentation and aging, the final blend of individual Cabernet Sauvignon wine lots and a small amount of Petit Verdot was artistically composed by winemaker Jeffrey Stambor and renowned consultant Michel Rolland.

    An extraordinary wine, dense, rich and earthy, with broad, plush tannins and tiers of complex currant, earth, cedar, black cherry, mineral and anise flavors. Keeps a tight focus on the long, rich, detailed aftertaste. Best from 2002 through 2010. 17,000 cases made.
