Myriad Cellars Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer 2018
Pure creme de cassis, white flowers, crushed violets, and graphite notes all emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard, which comes from a large valley floor vineyard in Rutherford. It's a more structured, full-bodied, beautifully layered 2018 that has building tannins as well as remarkable purity.
This iconic site located outside of St. Helena always produces a rich, powerful wine, and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is no exception, offering loads of black and blue fruits, gravelly earth, chocolate, and Asian spice notes as well as a full-bodied, opulent, sexy profile on the palate. With a beautiful sense of freshness, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish, this gorgeous effort needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 30 years or more.
