2002 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1017695 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve performed significantly better than it did seven years ago. Spicy oak and new saddle leather characteristics lead to dusty, loamy soil, cherry and cassis notes. The wine reveals terrific balance as well as a hint of French oak (BV is no longer using American oak as it did in the 1970's, 1960's and 1950's). This is intense, with some minerality as well as sweet tannins and abundant fruit, glycerin and richness. I was stunned by how well this cuvee is currently showing. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This much esteemed label has seen its share of ups and downs over the years, but the stuff in the bottle in 2002 is the best we have seen in a good many. Its close-to-classic nose of currants and dust and pencil-lead spice gives way to complex and wonderfully deep varietal flavors that marry generous fruit with lovely oak and flashes of minerals and loam. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (8/2005)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark It's young, dry, tight and tannic, although there's obviously a core of ripe black currant and cherry fruit. To evaluate this wine properly, you have to know its history as one of Napa's most ageable Cabernets. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (12/2005)
