Gushing with berry and new wood character--perhaps a bit too much--but it's rich and powerful, with lots of good tannins and a long finish. Definitely a modern-style Napa Cab.
Hugely classy nose, with delicate, off-ripe jam and chocolate aromas. Powerful tannins, with dark, ripe red fruit flavours - an iron fist in a velvet glove. 18/20 points.
Sweet and oaky aromas followed by rich fruit and dry, structured tannins.
Beaulieu's flagship, the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve, exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as aggressive toasty new oak, medium body, and firm tannin. The noticeable acidity exacerbates the firmness and tannic structure. Although very good, possibly excellent, it needs 2-4 years of cellaring. (RP)
Bright ruby-red. Quintessential Napa Valley aromas of cassis, tar, menthol, dried herbs, chocolate and Rutherford dust. Rather grapey flavors of cassis and spicy, cedary oak, complicated by an herbal note. Finishes rather tannic and a bit tough. Does this have enough flesh for its structure?
