Vintage Notes:

Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard is the former Beaulieu Vineyard No. 3, which was originally planted by Georges DeLatour of Beaulieu in 1928. The property is located between Conn Creek Road and Silverado Trail in Rutherford within the Rutherford AVA. Several clones of Cabernet Sauvignon are planted on the gravelly loam soils. This vineyard is quite late ripening and is a true representation of Bordeaux in Napa with ripeness in a very subtle and elegant envelope.
