Schrader Beckstoffer Georges III Vyd. Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
We are proud to present our portfolio of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon wines
from two of Napa Valley's most prestigious and historic vineyard estates—the
Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville and the Beckstoffer Georges III
Vineyard in Rutherford. With both outstanding locations, we combine
meticulous vineyard management with "no holds barred" winemaking practices
to produce elegant wines of exceptional depth, richness, and character that we
feel are the highest and most authentic expression of these noble vineyards.
"Seductive in its overlay of rich, concentrated flavors, with enticing jazzy toasty, creamy oak draped over rich currant, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's tight and focused. Ends with mouthcoating ripe tannins that have great traction. Best from 2010 through 2018."
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer George III Vineyard is one of the few wines that sees only 50% new Darnajou barrels along with 50% new Taransaud barrels. It exhibits beautiful tarry, smoky notes intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, and earth. A full-bodied, powerful, beautifully textured, layered, opulent effort, it should drink well for two decades or more.
