HI-TIME'S #4 NORTH AMERICAN CABERNET OF 2022

"The 2018 Georges de Latour is the best young vintage of the flagship wine I have ever tasted"; these are the words of world-renowned wine critic Antonio Galloni. Let that sink in for a moment...a man who has had the fortune to taste the best wines produced in the world, and to taste vintages at an estate going back decades (even more than a century in some cases), wrote these words. If this doesn't make you take interest in the Georges de Latour, then check your pulse!

Winemaker Trevor Durling grew up on Sonoma County, and has worked stints at Sonoma-Cutrer, Gloria Ferrer, and Provenance wineries. However, it was his integral contributions to the Hewitt Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, a wine that earned Wine Spectator's 2013 #4 Wine of the Year, that caught the eye of Beaulieu Vineyards. Now, Trevor presides as only the fifth chief winemaker in the winery's 120-year history.

ANTONIO GALLONI 98 POINTS - "I was so impressed with the BV wines this year. Trevor Durling, just the fifth winemaker in BV's long history, has brought a much-needed breath of fresh air to the estate. Not that the wines were bad before. They weren't. But they were maybe just a bit formulaic. Staid. Not anymore. The 2018 Georges de Latour is the best young vintage of the flagship wine I have ever tasted, while the Rutherford Reserve will thrill readers who are on a more modest budget."

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is fabulous. Inky, rich and explosive, the 2018 is a fine addition to the lineage of one of Napa Valley's most historic wines. Inky red fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice all open in the glass. Aeration brings out floral top notes, raspberry and a hint of blood orange. There is plenty of depth, but the tannins are finer than they were a few years ago. Shorter time on the skins and a reduction in barrel fermentations really allow the pedigree of these Rutherford sites to come through. The 2018 is sensational."
