Vinous 92 points - Bealieu’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is going to need at least a few years to come together. Today the aromatics are incisive, as are the tannins, both hallmarks of a long, cool growing season. The 2011 stands out for its energy, tension and persistence. There is plenty of potential here, but readers will have to be patient. The 2011 finishes with persistent salinity, energy and tension. 92+ Points  (Nov 2013)

Wine Spectator 88 points - Offers a taut core of spice- and mineral-laced cedar and dried dark berry flavors, ending with tight chewy tannins and the promise of a healthy future. Drink now through 2022. 5,700 cases made.-JL  (Jun 15 2014)

The 1936 Georges de Latour Private Reserve, Napa Valley’s first reserve wine, gained international recognition. Grapes selected from the finest blocks of our historic BV vineyards on the Rutherford Bench. Splash of Petit Verdot added violet nuances and structure. Our flagship wine—for life’s most important celebrations.
Producer
The deep roots of Beaulieu Vineyard were first planted back in 1900, when founder Georges de Latour noticed similarities with his native Bordeaux and declared the Napa Valley ideal for winemaking. He followed up on this belief by planting vineyards in Rutherford with grafted, phylloxera-resistant French vines. The Cabernet Sauvignons that de Latour crafted from these grapes gave the world its first taste of California’s promise as a world-class winemaking region. In 1938 de Latour hired the young Russo-French enologist Andre Tchelistcheff, who would become California’s most distinguished winemaker. Tchelistcheff’s knowledge of traditional French techniques and willingness to experiment in local conditions brought BV the Grand Sweepstakes Award at the Golden Gate International Exposition, and led to the creation of Napa Valley’s first reserve wine, Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
