Beaulieu Vineyard George de la Tour Private Reserve 2005
93 points -The Wine Advocate
The classic 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve represents one of the most historic Cabernet Sauvignons in California. Beautiful blackcurrant fruit jumps from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. Interestingly, it was blended with 7% Merlot. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, pure, stunning, rich and seemingly close to full maturity. Again, terrific balance suggests at least another 10-15+ years of cellaring is possible. This is a sexy, seductive style of Beaulieu Private Reserve that is irresistible at present, although it might get better.
