We are delighted to offer our first Beckstoffer Georges III bottling in many years. The spectacular vineyard site with its back to the Silverado Trail is the historic site of the grand old BV masterpieces produced for most of the last century. It is as pure an expression of Napa Valley terroir as is available anywhere, from anyone. Ripe and round black fruits, spice, blueberry, and cedar, and cigar box aromas are echoed on the palate and balanced by a preternatural lift from natural acidity and a swell of earth notes. A stunning achievement.

"Thick in sagebrush, dried herb, and earth, this wine is powerfully built and unabashedly ripe. Dark black fruit, mocha, and graphite notes arise along the thick, intense palate, leading to finishing touches of slate and iron. Cellaring will help to tame the tannins; enjoy from 2028–2035." - 3/1/2021

"Just a classic expression of this vineyard with its pure Cabernet dark fruits, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and cedar pencil-like aromas and flavors, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard hits the palate with a charming, forward style carrying loads of sweet fruit, full-bodied richness, and integrated tannins. This is a plush, undeniably delicious Cabernet to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years." - 1/27/2021
