BV Private Reserve has been on a real roll. This Georges is enormous and impressive, gigantic in fruit, explosive in blackberry tart, cherry pie, blueberry, plum, cigar box and vanilla aromas and flavors. Structurally, it’s an impeccable wine, showing the fine acidity and firm, dusty tannins that always constitute Georges. Beautiful now, and should age well for 10–20 years, in a cool cellar.
Primarily a Rutherford wine, this selection of BV's best fruit benefits from the firm's research into plant material, as their vineyards replanted to clones 4 and 6 are now maturing. They provide much of the distinctive flavor of this wine, a character that falls somewhere between pomegranate and raspberry with a roasted-fennel edge. It's unusual and extremely juicy, with a texture that turns to velvet across the palate. Fine-grained tannins keep it elegant, suited to age.
