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.
Our portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignons present both single clone wines
and ultimate-blend clone wines of distinctive character, superb texture,
and outstanding quality.
"Another candidate for perfection, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky comes from Clone 4, Clone 6 and Clone 337 although Clone 6 dominates the blend. Also a monumental wine, it is not as nuanced as the CCS or the RBS, but it possesses serious minerality as well as huge notes of tobacco leaf, pain grille, spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and licorice in both the aromatic and flavor profiles. The finish is endless in this super-intense, rich wine. Like all these wines, it is a 25- to 40-year effort although the sweetness of the tannin and the emerging complexity permits enjoyment even at this infantile stage."
