2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
"Tames intense tannins with an overlay of creamy, mocha-scented oak. The core is deep, rich and concentrated, with dark berry, currant, plum and cassis flavors. Sails along on the finish, even with the tannins. Best from 2021 through 2034.”
The Beckstoffer Vineyards Georges III in Rutherford is one of the most prestigious growing regions for cabernet sauvignon in the world. The varying soil types paired with careful selections of rootstock, clone, and row orientation sets the stage for the highest quality fruit yield. In the winery, it’s all about maximizing the extraction of juice from these amazing grapes then patiently aging the wine in barrel for two full years before bottling. This wine exemplifies what is considered classic Rutherford. Vanilla and tobacco on the nose, the rich mouthfeel is loaded with blackberry, chocolate, and savory baking spices. The finish is long and defined with a memory of mocha and dark berries.
