Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
VinousRipe, concentrated and intense, with fabulous richness throughout, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve brilliantly melds together elements of both the classic and modern. The flavors are dark and unctuous, but even with the wine's considerable mid-palate sweetness, the 2013 needs time for the tannins to soften. There is no shortage of potential, but readers will have to be patient.
Wine EnthusiastVelvety and plush on the palate, this classic Cabernet offers firm, youthful tannins and full-bodied concentration of dense black fruit. Cedar, dried herb and tobacco scents frame its core, broadcasting a burning intensity and sanguine chewiness. Cellar and enjoy best 2023-2033.
Wine SpectatorImpressively elegant and refined, exhibiting a graceful, understated array of harmonious flavors, with currant, anise, cedar and tobacco details amid crushed rock and loamy earth notes. Firms nicely on the finish, where the flavors linger. Drink now through 2030. 6,503 cases made.
