    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot

    Georges de Latour is the classic, original "Reserve" California wine, reflecting many decades of experience with some of Napa Valley's most historic vineyards. This wine was aged for 21 months in oak. Hand-harvested fruit, whole berries, careful but vigorous extraction during fermentation and gentle handling throughout the winemaking process yield a stunning wine for the ages.

    The 2005 vintage of this extraordinary wine offers intense aromas of black fruits, mocha, toast and briar. It is full bodied, with rich, mouth-filling tannins and deeply concentrated black currant, vanilla and anise flavors. This vintage will require seven to nine years of aging to reach maturity, yet tastes fine now — an excellent example of the vintage.

    "Excellent color: purple to the rim. Smoky claret-like aromas of tea, tobacco and red fruit. Soft wild berry flavors with dusty chalk and graphite accents. Spicy oak and chalky tannins punctuate the finish." 92 Points

    this is the best wine I've ever bought this quantit y of. That's how happy and how good a deal I thought it was. I recommend it to all as an example of bordeaux quality from Napa. Smmooth and now I've got to make sure I keep enough to taste it at maturity.
