Rutherford's Beaulieu Vineyard, established in 1900, helped to transform the Napa Valley into an internationally-renowned wine-lovers paradise. BV's portfolio of wines has earned it more rave reviews from the press than we can count, as well as thousands and thousands of ardent fans among wine lovers all over the world. To this day, the BV continues to produce world-class wines at every price point. We have a very precious few of one of their most iconic and collectible Cabernets - 36 bottles, to be exact. Your cellar and eventually your palate will be very pleased indeed with today's Once Daily, the 2013 Beaulieu Vineyard "Private Reserve George de Latour" Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley!

BV Reserve wines are handcrafted from the finest grapes of the vintage from Rutherford, Carneros and other Napa Valley appellations. When winemaker André Techelistcheff joined Beaulieu Vineyard in 1938, he tasted the de Latour family’s private wine – what they called “Private Reserve” – from the 1936 vintage. This Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine was so distinctive that Techelistcheff insisted it be bottled and sold as the winery’s flagship offering. In 1940, BV released the first vintage of Private Reserve and named it in honor of its founder. The resulting wine became the first release of "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon - and Napa Valley’s first “cult” Cabernet. (winery notes) Check out the press on the 2013!

"Love the aromas of mint, blackcurrants, stones, black licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, dense and tight with layers of very, very fine and velvety tannins and a long and fantastic finish. Wonderful length and texture. A classic. Drink in 2020." (May 22, 2017)

96 points, Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Ripe, concentrated and intense, with fabulous richness throughout, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve brilliantly melds together elements of both the classic and modern. The flavors are dark and unctuous, but even with the wine's considerable mid-palate sweetness, the 2013 needs time for the tannins to soften. There is no shortage of potential, but readers will have to be patient." (December 2016)

95+ points, The Wine Advocate
"One of the two flagship cuvées, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon "Private Reserve Georges de Latour" is a fabulous wine. Obviously, this is the one wine that received the most meticulous attention from their outside consultant Michel Rolland. 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 crème de cassis and kirsch, licorice, cedar wood, 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. This wine is young and still slightly unformed, but loaded with potential and upside. Forget it for 5-6 years and drink it over the following half-century. (October 29, 2015)

94 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Velvety and plush on the palate, this classic Cabernet offers firm, youthful tannins and full-bodied concentration of dense black fruit. Cedar, dried herb and tobacco scents frame its core, broadcasting a burning intensity and sanguine chewiness. Cellar and enjoy best 2023–2033. Cellar Selection." (May 1, 2017)
