Winemaker Mike Smith Notes
What an amazing and generous year 2013 was for the Beckstoffer Georges III vineyard. Perfect weather coupled with an extended hang time allowed us to pick at the optimum time and fashion another amazing Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark ruby purple to the rim, aromas of dark currant, anise and rock laced dark berry fruit combine with alluring mix of dense earth and fruit, cedar and savory notes that flow into a supple mid palate. While well proportioned and extracted, the tannins are firm but forgiving and allow the complexities to flow effortlessly into a finish that can be described as rich and dense but also light on its feet. Make sure to give this beauty a long decant if you decide to drink it in the next few years or lay it down for ...more... 7-10 years to bring out the complexities that come with some bottle age.
