1996 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #301251 91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (JS) Inner quote mark (2/2000)

Decanter

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2001)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Sweet and oaky aromas followed by rich fruit and dry, structured tannins. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (3/2002)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (1/2000)
