Beaulieu Vineyard (or BV for short), the hundred-something-year-old Napa Valley winery, announced yesterday that its wines will once again be featured at the upcoming 59th Primetime Emmy Awards celebration.
BV will be pouring its 2003 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (suggested retail price is $100/ 750 ml bottle) at the Emmys for the second consecutive year. From the taste profile:
This wine is nearly opaque black-ruby with purple highlights. The aromas show dark fruits, licorice, black pepper and minerals, with Rutherford accents of black olive, peppercorn and dark cherry. Full-bodied in texture, this wine has pronounced, dense and concentrated flavors of black currant, anise, sweet vanilla and distinctive minerality.
The winery will also be showcasing its 2005 Carneros Chardonnay at the big Hollywood shindig. Additional details here.
