Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Beckstoffer Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Station Plaza Wine
There are a scant 150 cases in the making of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III, which comes from a famous valley floor site in Rutherford (the early Georges de la Tour releases from Andre Tchelistcheff came from this vineyard) and is a mix of clones 337, 4, and 15. This beauty is a ripe, powerful 2017 that has loads of blueberry and kirsch liqueur fruit characteristics, plenty of chocolate, graphite, and violet nuances, full-bodied power, and a stacked mid-palate. It has plenty of tannins, which are largely concealed by a wealth of fruit, but this is the real deal and a serious, age-worthy, layered Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that does everything right.
