    May 31, 2020 - Very enjoyable drink!
    Showing the slightest hint of amber at the meniscus. Otherwise deep, indigo.
    Chewy. Strawberry preserves, fig, some leather, and black pepper on the palate. Nice acidity but not overpowering.

    April 19, 2020 - Medium Garnet. Clean nose of pronounced intensity of cooked prunes, tar, cedar, mushrooms, earth, smoke and chocolate. Wine is mature. Palate: dry, medium acidity, high alcohol, silky smooth body and very pleasant and smooth tannins. Pronounced flavors of tar, cooked blackberries, savory, cured meat notes. Finish is pleasant and medium. Very good wine in its prime now. I would drink over the next 1-2 years.

    November 30, 2019 - In the decanter for two hours when we started drinking, and it was certainly required, it opened up remarkably. Dark fruit, leathers and earthiness, this wine was sensational drinking. Lots of intensity, full mouth feel, long finish, it's a big wine, but really well balanced. In my view, this is in the prime drinking window now.

    (Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) George de Latour Private Reserve) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-some charcoal; mulberry; very dark fruit; almost like dark cherries coming through as well; interesting; PALATE-grape big league chew coming through on the mid-palate; very candied; definitely over oaked for me, although an intriguing refinement on the finish showing cassis, liqueur, leather notes; clearly currant, black cherries and blackberries; dark, smooth and rich; this is Steak House city; well made; a PAZZZ for me, BUT relatively well priced for the CULT wines it competes against (Insignia, Opus One, Dominus, Montelena); there is a delicious factor and very smooth; very classic Napa Cab Cult wine; RP-91; WE-95; GV-90
