Emerging from Beckstoffer – Georges III Vineyards, 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. It has the fleshy, upfront, hedonistic style found in all these Justice releases, yet it still has its balance as well as structure.
96 POINTS - Jeb Dunnuck
"A darker, more herbal, tobacco, and both red and black-fruited effort, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard hits the palate with full-bodied richness, broad, mouth-coating tannins, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish. All Cabernet aged 22 months in 68% new French oak barrels, this rich, meaty, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink well for 15-20 years."
95 POINTS - Vinous
"The 2019 Cabernet 95 Sauvignon Poetic Justice Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard is a fabulous wine that captures the essence of this Rutherford site to the fullest. Sweet dried cherry, tobacco, dried herbs, leather, licorice and tobacco open first, followed by layers of Georges III earthy and savory notes that round things out. This is a fabulous showing."
