"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III is 100% Cabernet that spent 22 months in 90% new French oak. This is a historic, larger vineyard, and the 2018 has a great nose of ripe, darker fruits, caramelized redcurrants, incense, and spice. I love its complexity, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a round, elegant texture, moderate tannins, and beautiful length on the finish. A classic, impeccably made wine, it will evolve for 20 years or more."

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard gives up vivacious notes of iron ore and crushed rocks over a core of warm cassis and plum preserves with hints of cloves and fragrant earth. The full-bodied palate fills the mouth with full-bodied, decadently rich black fruits, framed by velvety tannins and finishing long and spicy. 293 cases were made.
"2018 was a great and consistent vintage and this wine represents the vintage and vineyard well. The wine offers richer dark fruit character with a tobacco and cocoa powder that is often associated with Rutherford Dust. It is full bodied wine with a well integrated tanin structure and a ripe balanced structure that lasts through the elegant finish. Young though approachable, the wine will continue to develop offer the next several years to a decade." Winery
