George III, Napa
24 months in 100% new American oak barriques
Bottled & Released March 2019
Full-bodied and elegant. Intense flavours and aromas of black currants, blackberries, plum, sweet cedar, spics and mint, with plush silky tannins to carry the mid palate to the persistent finish. A full sensory experience of how elegant but complex and flavourful valley floor Cabernet can be.
George III is on the renowned Rutherford Bench in Napa Valley’s finest appellation. The sweet spot in all of Napa for the most sought-after and prized Cabernet Sauvignon.
Gently pressed and fermented at low temperatures for a deeper concentration of flavour and colour. No more than 1 atmosphere of pressure during pressing, resulting in only free run juice.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic meat dishes: Venison, lamb, pork chops, beef, stews. This wine is meant to compliment hearty and savory dishes rather than compete.
Very limited production. Drinks beautifully now. Better to decant for 1-3 hours. Even better after 5-13 years in bottle.
