    Winemaker's Notes:

    With immense concentration, our 2007 Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with blackberry, cassis and black plum aromas, with mocha, black licorice, graphite and spicy oak nuances. On the palate, these complex notes echo through the expansive, dark-fruit flavors. The texture is dense and rich, framed by muscular, yet velvety, tannins that ensure even more complexity with bottle aging. This is our flagship wine, worthy of pouring for life's most important celebrations.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The phenomenal 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is the greatest BV Private Reserve made since the 1970 and 1968. The good news is 11,000 cases were produced. The return of this superb Napa classic is fabulous news, and the brilliance of this wine is evidenced by its opaque purple color and its big, sweet, blackberry, cassis, subtle smoke, graphite, and spicy oak-scented nose. Dense and full-bodied with sweet but substantial tannins, thrilling levels of concentration, texture, and richness, and a heady finish, this wine will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and last three decades or more. It's time to once again fill your cellars with the BV Private Reserve, one of the historic names in California wine folklore.

    Good full red with ruby highlights. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, cherry, strawberry and cedar. Opulent and thick but very young, with an element of inner-mouth floral lift I did not find in the 2006. Here the substantial, firm tannins are sweeter, allowing the berry and floral flavors to linger and build. Stambor describes this as a better-structured version of the 1997. Certainly the best vintage for this wine in recent years.

    Over the years, Beaulieu's Reserves have run the gamut from thrill to disappointment, but the 2007 is a clear hit for the label and may turn out to be a classic. It is both rich and refined with a wonderful core of well-extracted curranty fruit framed with complementary oak and accented with touches of coffee, loam and the dusty spice of its provenance. It is a dense, deeply filled, eminently ageworthy wine, and, while it is simply too tannic to drink anytime soon, it will develop famously over the next ten to twenty years.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    Firm, ripe, rich and concentrated, full-bodied and tightly focused, with a chewy core of dried currant, mineral, fresh earth, spice, black licorice and dried sage, gaining weight, depth and density and ending with a potent, full-bodied finish. Best from 2011 through 2018.
