Winemaker Notes

Georges de Latour is the classic, original "Reserve" California wine, reflecting many decades of experience with some of Napa Valley's most historic vineyards. This wine was aged for 21 months in oak. Hand-harvested fruit, whole berries, careful but vigorous extraction during fermentation and gentle handling throughout the winemaking process yield a stunning wine for the ages.

The 2005 vintage of this extraordinary wine offers intense aromas of black fruits, mocha, toast and briar. It is full bodied, with rich, mouth-filling tannins and deeply concentrated black currant, vanilla and anise flavors. This vintage will require seven to nine years of aging to reach maturity, yet tastes fine now — an excellent example of the vintage.

"Excellent color: purple to the rim. Smoky claret-like aromas of tea, tobacco and red fruit. Soft wild berry flavors with dusty chalk and graphite accents. Spicy oak and chalky tannins punctuate the finish." 92 Points

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Blended of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour was aged for 20 months in 90% French oak, 8% American oak and 2% “European oak,” 80% of which was new. Medium to deep garnet colored, the nose is quite closed to begin, then with coaxing, it reveals subtle crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and blueberry compote notions with suggestions of espresso, lilacs, licorice and cedar chest. Full-bodied (14.8% alcohol) and built like a brick house, the palate is concentrated and densely laden with black fruit preserves and savory layers giving way to earth and floral fireworks on the long finish. Just entering its drinking window, this beauty still has a long life ahead!
