Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard opens with a mild cassis bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and acai berry blend with subtle hints of nutmeg, cassis, cherry and oak in the background. The finish is dry and its well-managed tannins linger and last for a very long time. This terrific Cab would pair nicely with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Twenty-Sixteen was an incredible year for our Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard G3 Wine. An alluring mix of aromatics consisting of dark dried fruits, acacia flowers, creosote and Belgium chocolate intertwine with a mid-palate that is loaded with layers of pedigree. The beauty of this site is how it captures and marries subtle but exuberant ripeness with the dusty earth of the Rutherford appellation. The finish combines the above notes and extends into an abyss of dark fruit notes accompanied with baking spice's, blueberry cobbler and plush tannins that envelope the senses. This wine is immediately approachable yet will to gain further complexities for 3-8 years.
