1990 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #900430 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot, the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour saw greatly reduced yields this vintage due to poor fruit set. French oak is used for the first time this year at Beaulieu—the wine was aged for 20 months in 50% French and 50% American oak barrels. Medium brick colored, it leaps from the glass offering bold baked black cherries, dried plums and rose hip tea scents with touches of dried herbs, new leather and camphor plus a suggestion of powdered cinnamon. Medium-bodied with just 13% alcohol, the palate has a solid frame of firm, grainy, wonderfully ripe tannins supporting bags of pure black fruit preserves, finishing long and lively. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good full deep red, but less bright than the 1991. Vinous, Pauillac-like scents of cassis, black cherry, spices, mocha and minerals, along with some distinctly evolved notes. Large-scaled, fleshy and seamless but classically dry, finishing with fine-grained tannins. A very round style that hints at extreme ripeness without quite going pruney. Still, with its rather soft impression of acidity, this wine faded in the glass. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
