Beaulieu Vineyards Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1985 (1.5L)
90 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour was aged for 2.5 years in 50-gallon American oak barrels. It came in at 13% alcohol. Pale tawny colored, a whiff of balsamic/volatile acidity leads to notions of dusty soil, tree bark and oolong tea over a core of kirsch and truffles plus a hint of red loam. Light to medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, the tannins are going a little powdery, and there is some fragile fruit clinging to the mid-palate, finishing a little abruptly. 19,600 cases were produced." 05/19
92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Good full medium red, with faint amber at the edge. Pungent scents of raspberry, spices, cedar and eucalyptus. A distinctly penetrating, high-acid style with noteworthy clarity and energy to its floral flavors of berries, dark cherry and loam complicated by a touch of molasses and an obvious oak component. This soil-driven midweight, the product of a long, cool growing season, finishes with a sneaky building whiplash of flavor, with a slight dry edge suggesting energetic extraction. Classic older-style Georges de Latour. (13% alcohol; 6.4 g/l acidity)" 03/19
