Winemaker's Notes:

A richly fruity and rather deeply colored wine, this vintage reveals the hallmark ripe blackberry-anise, plum and coffee flavors and aromas typical of fruit harvested at peak ripeness. The flavors are full and fleshy, revealing an opulent texture combined with ripe and supple tannins. Drinkable now, this will actually benefit from a couple of years in the bottle! Great with all manner of meat and poultry dishes, but especially grilled ones.

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.
