Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve 1997
from Napa Valley, California
Nearly opaque, magenta-ruby color. Strong, sweet cassis, blackberry, roasted chestnut and herbal aromas are framed by definitive but not overarching vanilla-oak scents providing additional nuance. Ripe and sweet blackberry cabernet flavors show succulent fruit and mid-palate texture, with full body and ample mouthfeel. Firm but ripe tannins add structural support in the finish. An enjoyable and fleshy wine now, it should age well for two decades or more.

My wife and I enjoyed a bottle of the 97 BV GDL Cabernet on our 4th anniversary. We both thought that the wine had a very nice blend of their pure estate cab mixed with a slight berry taste and a hint of oak. The wine drank very well for a 97, and with a few more years on its side, this one is a huge winner.
