1987 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Lightly Bin Soiled Label)

SKU #1446869 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Healthy dark red with little sign of amber at the rim. Aromas of cassis, dark cherry, cedar and black olive convey an impression of medicinal reserve. At once dense and juicy, showing good intensity and savory soil tones but still a bit folded in on itself. A fairly powerful wine, not edgy or dry. A second, slightly better bottle was a bit more vibrant and forthcoming on the nose and more pliant in the mid-palate. (12.9% alcohol; 3.36 pH; 6.5 g/l acidity) (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Generous, soft and big, with a dark ruby color and mint, plum and smoke character. Full-bodied and very velvety, with lots of ripe berry and chocolate flavors and a long, long finish. (JS) Inner quote mark (2/2000)

K&L Notes

The 1987 vintage of Beaulieu's signature wine is deeper and richer than the 1986, full of lovely cedar and mint aromas and fresh-tilled soil on the nose. A tightly wound wine upon bottling, this needed time for the acidity and tannin to integrate so that the mint, mineral and sweet berry fruit could really come through.
