This BV Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet has many rich, seductive layers, notably of dark, ripe fruit, and you are going to want to swim through each and every one. Suit up wine lovers; you do NOT want to miss this one. It has phenomenal aging potential, so you might want to consider getting a few more for the cellar, for that 20th anniversary, or special occasion down the road...  When that glorious day comes to open your first bottle, our favorite choice for this intense beauty is Mario Batali's grilled lamb chops with garlic confit and mint. Next to them, nestle some eggplant involtini, thin slices of eggplant, wrapped around ricotta, egg and spices, which are then baked in a tomato sauce. They will be perfect for the earthy side of this Private Reserve Napa Cab. This is a robust meal, which is the least that this Georges de Latour deserves. If you're craving beef, this delicious diva warrants a special trip to the butcher for some thick, marbled steaks of your choice. Grill them the way you like, and serve them with a rich sauce like Bearnaise, next to potatoes your favorite way; they'll bring out the swarthy tannins. If you have any room left, we suggest a slice of dense bittersweet chocolate tart sprinkled with toasted pine nuts. 

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Blended of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot matured for 22 months in French oak, 90% new, this vintage has an alcohol level of 14.9%. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is still incredibly youthful. Sporting notions of cedar and cinnamon toast to begin, the nose opens out to beautiful notes of warm cassis, crushed red and black plums and kirsch with floral hints of roses and candied violets. Sparks of crushed rocks and cast iron pan plus a touch of dried herbs emerge with coaxing. Full-bodied, rich, bold and energetic in the mouth, the palate reveals a very firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long with beautiful mineral accents. Drink date: 2022-2060."  May 2019
