Ratings & Tasting Notes:
93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Coming from the second drought vintage in a row in the 1970s in Napa, although yields were closer to normal this year, the wine spent two years in 50-gallon American oak barrels prior to bottling. The alcohol came in at 13%. Medium tawny-brick colored, the 1977 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour reveals compelling menthol, smoked meats and Indian spice scents with a core of kirsch, mincemeat pie and new leather plus hints of dried flowers and cast iron pan. Medium-bodied with lovely purity and bold freshness, it features plush, very fine-grained tannins supporting muscular dried berries, finishing on a mineral note. (LPB) (5/2019)
93 points Vinous
Healthy, moderately saturated medium red. Cherry, minerals and a hint of cedar on the nose, lifted by high-pitched ginger and cinnamon spice notes. A surprisingly piercing style of wine with lovely inner-mouth perfume and lift to its raspberry and floral flavors. This sexy, energetic, classically dry vintage finish with a balsamic cedary quality, nicely integrated tannins and repeating minerality. (ST) (4/2019)
