Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in the well-known Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard. It’s at a funny stage of development, with primary cherry and blackberry fruit starting to fade, while sage, dill, green olive and dried fruit notes are emerging. The tannins remain robust, while the acidity is just about perfect for Napa Valley. Awkward now, but with a promising future, it should emerge from the doldrums after 2017.
