Beaulieu Vineyards ''Private Reserve'' Cabernet Sauvignon--Vintage 1951
Beaulieu Vineyards "Private Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon--Vintage 1951
Level: just below top shoulder. Lightly soiled label.
"A great wine, rich and lovely at 20 years old and on three occasions since. Most recently: fabulous appearance, great depth and richness; low-keyed massive and concentrated; low-keyed, massive and concentrated, the bouquet clasped tight, slow to emerge, walnuts, almost smoky, a sort of sooty richness; the sweetness of ripe grapes and maximum alcoholic content, huge, fleshy, velvety, perfect acidity... A sort of amalgam of '55 Latour and '59 Cheval Blanc." GVWB
