BV "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1985
Cabernet Sauvignon | Napa Valley
Deep magenta core with a touch of garnet rim. Nose of salted almond, cranberry, teriyaki, dried leaf, and cigar smoke. The palate is savory, with lots of soy umami, tart red cherries, leafy brown tobacco, high acid, and polished, very smooth tannins.
The fill level is excellent, mid-neck, and the labels are pristine. These were well-cared for in a climate controlled cellar. Definitely very savory and developed with old-school tart acidity and a fascinating glimpse into old-school Napa.
