2008 Proprietary Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

2008 Proprietary Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

This phenomenal blend combines the lush textures and vibrant fruit of Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in Rutherford with the darker fruit and firm structure of Spring Mountain and Howell Mountain fruit. The resulting wine has excellent balance and an explosive mix of cassis, red fruit, chocolate and sweet spice, while retaining the seductive textures and silky tannins from the Georges III component. Spring Mountain provides broad shoulders and blackberry, while Howell Mountain balances the wine with touches of fresh acidity, minerality and cocoa.
