1997 Beaulieu Vineyard BV Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley USA
"Please note the image is of a representative bottle. For pictures of the actual, bottle please contact the store."
An extraordinary wine, dense, rich and earthy, with broad, plush tannins and tiers of complex currant, earth, cedar, black cherry, mineral and anise flavors. Keeps a tight focus on the long, rich, detailed aftertaste. *Cellar Selection. Top 100 wines of 2000, No. 34* (JL)
95 Points Wine Spectator
A strong effort from Beaulieu, the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautifully sweet nose of spicy oak intermixed with black cherries and currants. Full-bodied, rich, pure, and concentrated, it combines restraint and elegance with power and muscle. It will age well for two decades. While Beaulieu is no longer one of California's cutting edge wineries, this is classic stuff.
