Winemaker Notes

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.

"Ripe, round and smooth, with a core of coffee, currant, sage, cedar and spice. Gains nuance and complexity on the finish, where the tannins are firm and integrated. Wonderful texture and polish. Drink now through 2008."

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.
