Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Even in this vintage, which was not so great, Beaulieu has succeeded with this dramatic, classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s absolutely delicious, offering a range of blackberry, black currant and cedar flavors, complexed with notes of chocolate, anise, sweet smoky leather and Asian spices. Beautiful now for its velvety softness, but has the inherent structure to last for a long time. Through 2014, and much longer if you like older Cabernet.
CG 92
Connoisseurs' Guide
Very deep and extracted, and showing again that 2006 is a vintage capable of making very good wines even it has proven to be more difficult than in recent years, this expressive effort smells of currants, black cherry and hints of tea leaves with a nice dollop of sweet, slightly caramelly oak on top. Supple at entry, then firming up across the palate and tightening without losing its way at the finish, this one boasts classic structure and classic character.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Georges de Latour defines finesse in Napa Valley cabernet with its crushed velvet texture and blue-black richness of fruit. In this vintage, it’s more about texture than freshness, the lasting impression its smooth, creamy feel. Its tannin will plump up grilled chopped sirloin.
