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.
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)
