Beckstoffer George III Vineyard. Free Shipping On A Case
Georges III Vineyard is located on Napa Valley’s legendary Rutherford Bench, adjacent to Caymus Winery and bordered by Conn Creek and the Silverado Trail. The estate encompasses the historic Beaulieu Vineyard No. 3, which Beckstoffer Vineyards purchased in 1988, along with four adjacent properties – 300 acres in total.
Historical records show that a portion of the vineyard was planted to grapevines in 1895 by Elizabeth and Thomas Rutherford. The bride’s grandfather, George Yount (for whom the town of Yountville is named), was an early Napa Valley settler who had been granted more than 11,000 acres by the Mexican Commandante of Alta California, General Mariano Vallejo. Yount gifted the newlyweds 1,040 acres to celebrate their nuptials.
The wine is full-bodied, multi-dimensional and stunningly proportioned and rich. This is a big, impressive, rich Cabernet Sauvignon with wonderfully sweet tannins and a juicy, unctuously textured mid-palate and length. An absolutely fabulous wine. It would be difficult to want more in a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon than this. Drink it over the next 25 years.
