Handcrafted with cutting-edge winemaking worthy of our highest quality grapes, the 2008 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays exceptionally complex, harmonious flavors. The deep aromas and expansive flavors are filled with blackberry, cassis, dark plum, mocha, black licorice and sweet, toasted oak spices. Barrel fermentation of a portion of the must (crushed grapes) in French oak barrels resulted in early integration of the opulent dark-fruit and new-oak character. This technique also enhanced the dense, rich texture and gave suppleness to the muscular tannins, while retaining long aging potential. This is our flagship wine to enjoy with life's most important celebrations.

Another brilliant offering is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with terrific structure, lots of creme de cassis, minerality, beautiful purity of black currants and cherries, a judicious touch of oak, and a full-bodied, structural profile that is almost Bordeaux-like. This complete, rich and promising effort should be a 25-30-year wine.

Impressive for its stylish delicacy, finesse and subtle details, this firm red offers complex loamy earth, cherry, currant and plum flavors that build and gain traction on the finish, where the tannins have a pleasing loamy edge. Drink now through 2022. 8,500 cases made.
