Description

This 2009 wine from Beaulieu Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our famous vineyards in the heart of Rutherford—BV1 and BV2. After hand picking these vineyards, our director of winemaking, Jeffrey Stambor, handcrafted this one-of-a-kind wine in our new dedicated Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery. Beaulieu Vineyard recently celebrated 110 years of leadership and prestige in the Napa Valley, and its mark in the world of winemaking as a whole. Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was first created in 1936 to honor founder Georges de Latour, and with each release we commemorate his vision and passion for excellence. This wine remains the ultimate artistic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon at BV and sets the standard for great California wines.
