2012 BEAULIEU Vineyard (BV) Georges de Latour Cabernet Reserve


$115.00

Size: 750

The high-quality 2012 harvest was a winemaker's dream. The relaxed, easy vintage was greatly appreciated after the challengingly cool weather patterns in 2011. Long stretches of sunny days coupled with foggy nights gave our 2012 wines exceptionally rich, expressive flavors and impeccable balance. The ideal growing season well timed rains, no frost during bud break, and perfect weather for bloom, berry set and ripening was textbook Napa Valley.

BV LogoWinery Notes: At our state-of-the-art winery, dedicated exclusively to Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, we hand sorted the destemmed berries to retain only the highest quality fruit. Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor then fermented 45 percent of the grapes in new French oak barrels for early integration of fruit and oak character and to enhance the dense, rich texture; the balance was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following judicious extended skin contact and in- barrel malolactic fermentation, the wine was pressed and returned to barrels for aging. Jeffrey blended the Cabernet Sauvignon with a small amount of Petit Verdot and Malbec to further enhance the wine’s aroma and flavor spectrum.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is BV’s flagship wine. It boasts sweet notes of charcoal, burning embers, vanillin, tar and copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In keeping with this generously endowed vintage, the wine is supple, full-bodied, multidimensional and opulent. It will drink beautifully young and last for 20-25 years.
