97 points/'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: "Another stunning vintage of this classic wine, blended with 9% Petit Verdot, this wine is dark and brooding in black cherry, cassis and currant, with a rich nose of baking spice. Lengthy and generous in tannin, it shows a backbone of ageworthy structure and complexity, with a lasting thread of dark chocolate. Enjoy best from 2029–2039. (Oct 2022)"
97 points Decanter: "One of Napa Valley's most iconic wines, today produced by Trevor Durling, only the fourth winemaker to follow in the footsteps of the great André Tchelistcheff. Recent vintages have been very compact on release, revealing very little of the immense complexity and deliciousness that they are capable of evolving into. This 2019 is no exception. Reticent on the nose with fresh cedar, wild herbs and blackberry fruit. Full, round and robust palate with saturated black and blueberry fruit, currants, graphite and coffee bean. Weighty but with tremendous tension and energy. Drinking Window: 2024-2045. (Jun 2022)"
95 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Independent): "The 2019 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it swans out with up-front scents of redcurrant jelly, warm cassis, and black cherry preserves, plus suggestions of cedar chest, sassafras, and ground cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of fragrant black fruit flavors with a lively line and super-soft tannins, finishing with a spicy lift. Drink: 2025-2045. (Aug 2022)"
94 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "While the quality of the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is indeed excellent, what may be even more impressive is that there are more than 12,000 cases of the stuff. Marked by scents of cherries, dusty earth, dried herbs and hints of cedar, it's full-bodied, silky and complex, with a lingering finish. It doesn't require much cellaring, but it should drink well for close to two decades. Nicely done. Drink: 2024-2040. (Sep 2022)"
