Vineyard: One of the most famous plots of land in all of Napa, the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard is located on the valley floor in Rutherford between Conn Creek Road and Silverado Trail. The well-draining, gravelly loam soils from the former creek bed combine with ideal sun exposure to yield wines with richness, fruit intensity and structure. This wine is sourced from the B1a block of the vineyard, planted in 1992 to Cabernet clone 7. Vintage: From the beginning 2013 was destined to be an epic vintage, as textbook spring conditions produced steady flowering and an ideal fruit set. Clear warm days and cool nights continued on an uninterrupted stretch throughout the summer and early fall, allowing for optimal ripeness and flavor development. We let all of our Cabernet lots hang late into October, when we harvested just before the light rains that finally crashed the party towards the end of the month. Winemaking: The grapes were destemmed into one open-top tank for a brief cold soak before fermentation began spontaneously with wild yeast. Fermentation continued without the addition of any chemicals or enzymes, aided only by a bit of heat and occasional pump-overs. After pressing the wine went into 100% new French oak barrels and aged for 24 months, and was racked only once, immediately prior to bottling. Tasting Notes: "From this mighty vineyard hails this full-bodied and intensely robust wine, rich and smooth in sinewy texture and sure-to-please blackberry jam and vanilla bean." - 90 points, Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast
