Beaulieu Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Georges de Latour, Napa Valley, 2016

Since 1900. Estate selection. The first Georges De Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted with grapes from the 1936 vintage by iconic Winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, who tasted the wine in barrel and insisted on giving it an independent bottling. Today this wine is widely considered the standard bearer of fine Rutherford Cabernet with deep fruit character, silky tannins and impressive aging ability. Our Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the legacy of our founder's passion and vision to create wines of distinction in one of the most renowned AVAs in Napa Valley. Today at BV, we are artisans, craftsmen and stewards of our iconic vineyards and historic winery. We push the boundaries of what excellence in quality means by hand-picking and sorting grapes and single barrel fermentations. These traditional methods are much more labor intensive, but the result is the ultimate artistic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon - a tribute to our founder for more than 100 years. www.bvwines.com. 14.9% alc. by vol. 29.8 Produced and bottled by Beaulieu Vineyard at Rutherford, Napa Valley, California
