Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been widely recognized as the benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford since its inaugural vintage in 1936. The understanding of terroir comes from more than 100 years of creating rich, classic Napa Valley wines. Its legacy honors the marriage between state-of-the-art technology and gentle, traditional winemaking methods, a combination that enhances the expression of remarkable vineyards.
The wonderful 2014 vintage gave Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon its beautiful fresh fruit character and rich, full-bodied structure. Hugely complex and expressive, the wine reveals a broad spectrum of juicy briary black currant, cherry and cassis notes, with nuances of cedar, sandalwood and mocha. Muscular tannins support the plush, expansive palate, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy. Well-integrated notes of caramel and toasted oak spices—from aging in new French oak barrels—heighten the aromas and linger on the finish. To enjoy this wine at its full potential, we recommend at least five years of bottle aging; if you can’t wait, however, decant before serving.
