Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour 2009

Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour 2009

750ML          
Sku: 023543

The 1936 Georges de Latour Private Reserve, Napa Valley’s first reserve wine, gained international recognition. Grapes selected from the finest blocks of our historic BV vineyards on the Rutherford Bench. Splash of Petit Verdot added violet nuances and structure. Our flagship wine—for life’s most important celebrations.

Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spice, complemented by a very ripe chocolatey quality. Broad, lush and ripe on the palate, a step beyond the winery’s other 2009s in texture and depth. Wonderfully fine-grained wine in the style of the year, with ripe cassis and chocolate flavors offering early appeal. The wine’s dusty, ripe tannins spread out to saturate the palate. Accessible now but with the stuffing and structure to age for 15 or 20 years.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour has closed down since bottling, but it is clearly well-made with an attractive deep ruby/plum/purple color, sweet toasty oak, hints of jammy black cherries and black currants, moderately high tannins, and a broodingly backward, tannic profile. Currently in a dormant state, this 2009 should be decanted for several hours prior to drinking. It should emerge in 5-6 years and last for 15-20 years.

Bold, rich and concentrated, focused on a dense core of blackberry, cherry, red and black licorice. Firmly tannic and chewy, with subtle earthy notes at the foundation. Best from 2014 through 2026.—J.L.
