Beaulieu Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

From magnum. This was from a recent winery release.
Medium garnet color. A wonderful pretty nose of sweet vanilla, eucalyptus, creme de cassis, and red fruits dominate in a very sexy showy way. The palate had intense creme de cassis,smooth sweet red fruits and a slightly overdone (to my taste) vanilla component. Some tar and leather. The tannins were completely resolved. A long finish completes this one. This was undeniably GdL. Showed much better than our BV GdL Vertical 18 months back. Peaking but in no danger for a couple of more years.
The recent cellar release and format (magnum) guaranteed a wonderful provenance. The Marilyn Monroe of the evening.
