PRICE ON 12/19/2014: $21.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Nearly opaque, dark ruby-violet color. Complex aromas of spicy, sappy, black cherry and black pepper, anise, crushed raspberries, dark cocoa and dried herbs. Firm and medium full-bodied flavors echo the aromas, with more apparent peppery character in the rich, firmly structured finish. A bolder, somewhat more muscular version of Beauzeaux than previous vintages. Enjoy this with Western barbecue and the classic red wine dishes of Southern France.

Blend: 56% Zinfandel, 12% Charbono, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Lagrein, 5% Sangiovese, 4% Valdiguie, 2% Tempranillo, 1% Touriga Nacional

About Beaulieu Vineyard:

The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. Planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistent French vines, the Cabernet Sauvignon that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world a taste of California's promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938, de Latour hired the young Russian-French enologist, Andre Tchelistcheff. Today, Beaulieu continues to turn to innovative practices. Most recently, they completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of their original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional wine.
