Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
The superb 2014 vintage gave the 2014 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon its unctuous fruit character and dense structure. Hugely complex, the wine reveals a broad spectrum of briary blackberry, black cherry and currant notes, with nuances of violet and bittersweet chocolate. Muscular tannins support the plush, expansive palate, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy.
Dark and rich, offering extracted blackberry, currant and plum flavors that are roughhewn and chewy, with notable oak showing as well. Gives you parts but not a whole in terms of focus and refinement. Best from 2020 through 2029. 13,200 cases made.
