1997 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) with deep, ripe aromas of crushed blackberries, dark cherries, bittersweet chocolate and violets. The highly saturated black-fruit flavors echo the aromas as they expand across the palate and persiston the finish. Nuances of toffee and toasted oak spices, from aging in 100 percent new French oak barrels, add even more complexity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) This vintage boasts exceptionally powerful yet elegant flavors. The highly saturated aromas and expansive, richly textured flavors brim with deep blackberry and cassis expression. Layered nuances of espresso bean, crushed anise seed, bay leaf, violet and toasted oak contribute complexity to the sumptuous dark-fruit character.

    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.
