2014 Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford

2014 Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford

This wine is produced from the famed, former Beaulieu Vineyard No. 3 in Rutherford, which was originally planted by Georges DeLatour of Beaulieu in 1928. The 2014 growing season began early in Rutherford, with winter drought conditions leading to early bud break and ideal dry heat. Robert Parker has rated the 2014 vintage as an outstanding, accessible vintage, marked by an intensely dark color, robust aromatics and excellent overall fruit character. In 2014 we picked our F-Block vines in two separate meticulous sweeps so all the clusters reached optimal maturity. The individual components were then blended to create a beautifully balanced wine with a silky smooth texture and flavors of dark cherry, earth and mocha. This is one of Beckstoffer’s premier Napa Valley vineyards, and the wine showcases the signature Rutherford Dust aromatic profile.
