A blend of Napa valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from George the III vineyard, across the street from
To Kalon. Clones 4 & 6 grown to exacting standards and blended with a little bit of Syrah and Merlot using our unique protocol. Some of the world's most prized Cabernet, meticulous selection and specific winemaking protocols make this Cabernet Sauvignon blend a must have bottle.
Full bodied, intense flavors of black cherry, blackberries, plum, sweet cedar and anise up front, elegant and silky tannins carry the mid palate to the persistent finish. A full sensory experience of how elegant but complex and flavourful valley floor Cabernet can be.
Purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1988, the vineyard was replanted using new Cabernet Sauvignon clones with tighter spacing and more technical trellising, giving way for higher quality, more control and more grape tonnage to pull. This is Beckstoffer Vineyards home base of operations.
Aged in new american oak barrels for 24 months
Gently pressed and fermented at low temperatures for a deeper concentration of flavour and colour.
No more than 1 atmosphere of pressure during pressing, free run juice only.
