Beaulieu Vineyard Georges De Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
- Red Wine
From Wine Advocate 96 Points
"A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 4% Merlot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, 90% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a profound nose of baked blackberries, Black Forest cake, Christmas pudding and Chinese five spice with hints of rose hip tea, cedar chest and mincemeat pie. Full-bodied, super rich and wonderfully concentrated, the palate provides a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and spicy. At 15% alcohol, it is a beautifully rich, ripe, opulent expression with bags of compelling freshness to offset all that decadence." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Jun 1, 2019
From Wine Spectator 89 Points
"Well-packed, featuring red currant, plum and blackberry fruit flavors, with loam, singed alder and cedar shaving notes running through the finish. A touch toothy in feel, but has enough fruit and drive to wait it out. The best of three bottles tasted. Best from 2021 through 2026. 8,400 cases made." — JM, 2020
