Georges III Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a classic expression of one of the most famous and historical vineyards in the Napa Valley. With its pure Cabernet dark fruits, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and cedar pencil-like aromas and flavors, the 2022 Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon hits the palate with a charming, forward style carrying loads of sweet fruit, full-bodied richness, and integrated tannins.

Tasting Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III is deep and inky to the core. Thick in sage brush, dried herb and earth, this wine is powerfully built and unabashedly ripe. Dark black fruit, mocha and graphite notes arise along the thick, intense palate, leading to finishing touches of slate and iron.


A famed vineyard first acquired in 1928 by Georges de Latour, the founder of Beaulieu Vineyard, and would go on to serve as the backbone of the outstanding wines of the Tchelistcheff era. The Beckstoffers purchased the vineyard in 1988. They have since replanted it with new Cabernet Sauvignon clones The vineyard lies on the Rutherford Bench, where proximity to Conn Creek and the well-drained soils of the old creek bed combine with spectacular western exposure to produce wines of extraordinary character. The Georges III Vineyard yields Cabernet Sauvignon of remarkable complexity, producing wines that have become a benchmark for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
