2013 Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Rutherford
The original Rutherford Dust" red, and served at The White House since the FDR administration, we're proud to offer you Beaulieu Vineyards' 2013 Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon. The latest in a long lineage of noble wines, this 2013 is gorgeous, and it will easily hold its own with some of BV's most memorable vintages.
Beaulieu crafts this iconic wine from the BV 1 and BV 2 vineyards, both in the heart of Rutherford, near Inglenook and Bosché vineyard. Now over 20 years old, the vineyards are in their prime and cranking out concentrated, dusty fruit. Robert Parker took notice, and lavished it with praise:
"2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is a fabulous wine. A great effort in 2013, as one might expect in this vintage, this wine needs 5-6 years and seems capable of lasting 30-40 or more, given the history of the great BV Private Reserves. Inky purple to the rim, with an extraordinary nose of créme de cassis and kirsch, licorice, cedarwood, and a touch of underbrush, the wine hits the palate with a full-bodied, powerful, concentrated, dense style, has great acidity, moderately sweet tannin, and a long, long finish."
Considering this wine's proud breed, its track record, durability over time, and superb score from Parker, it is an unassailably smart buy in our book. Why not lay in a 6 pack or a case? "
