  • 1987 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve

How was this VinT?  I opened one in February and it was DOA.  I've got one left, but not really hopeful.

tlv, this was very much alive albeit with resolved tannins and primarily soft, sweet fruit remaining.  It was a great addition to the 'old Cali' lineup that included the '94's and an illuminating couterpoint to the more earthy '89 Prieure Lichine.

There were several other Forumites present at the event, all of whom possess better palates than mine.  Perhaps they might weigh in.

Thanks. I’ll hope for the best.
