Our 2006 George de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon commemorates the 70th vintage of this exceptional wine. The 1936 George de Latour Private Reserve was the original California private reserve and first wine from Napa Valley to gain international recognition. To this day, it remains the ultimate artistic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon at Beaulieu Vineyard. We use handcrafted detail with small-lot fermentation, a portion of which is executed in barrel, for seamless integration of flavors and rich, silky complexity.
The 2006 Georges de Latour Private Reserve marries refined elegance with opulent intensity and robust character. It woos the senses with heady aromas of blackberry bramble, ripe cassis, mocha and spice. Dark, concentrated fruit picks up intensity across the palate, joined by classic Rutherford notes of black licorice, loam and coffee. Formidable body is balanced by firm tannins that span the midpalate and linger with hints of cocoa through the smooth finish.
