93 points "Rated: 93 by Stephen Tanzer, May 12, 2012 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spice, complemented by a very ripe chocolatey quality. Broad, lush and ripe on the palate, a step beyond the winery's other 2009s in texture and depth. Wonderfully fine-grained wine in the style of the year, with ripe cassis and chocolate flavors offering early appeal. The wine's dusty, ripe tannins spread out to saturate the palate. Accessible now but with the stuffing and structure to age for 15 or 20 years." Best 2014-2026

95 points "The phenomenal 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is the greatest BV Private Reserve made since the 1970 and 1968. The good news is 11,000 cases were produced. The return of this superb Napa classic is fabulous news, and the brilliance of this wine is evidenced by its opaque purple color and its big, sweet, blackberry, cassis, subtle smoke, graphite, and spicy oak-scented nose. Dense and full-bodied with sweet but substantial tannins, thrilling levels of concentration, texture, and richness, and a heady finish, this wine will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and last three decades or more. It’s time to once again fill your cellars with the BV Private Reserve, one of the historic names in California wine folklore. Score: 95. —Robert Parker, December 2009. " Best 2014-2020
