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? "

BV is back, and the critics say they are better than ever. Disregarded for decades as an international corporation content with slinging pallets of juice to every big retail outlet in the country, BV is here to remind you that Georges de LaTour himself was the O.P. (Original Pioneer) of the Napa Valley back in 1938. Throw in the one-and-only Michel Rolland to lead the party and map the course, and they're once again showing the kind of moxie that put them at the top of the mountain in the first place. The air is sweet up here... grab your 12-pack and join us at the summit!
