Beaulieu Vineyard BV, Georges de Latour Private Reserve 2018

Beaulieu Vineyard, Georges de Latour Private Reserve 2018

An iconic winery of Napa, flexing its Californian muscles here. This a broad-shouldered vintage, with supple and silky cassis and bilberry fruits, showing levels of ripeness to the Cabernet Sauvignon fruits that you rarely find in Europe. Enjoyable, confident, layered through with chocolate and liquorice bean, plus heavy-set tannins, confidently hugging the fruit. Part of Treasury Wine Estates, headed up by Trevor Durling, who is also the winemaker.
