"It was a dream to work with these grapes from Beckstoffer's Georges III vineyard. This revered plot is a piece of Napa's history. With this wine, we wanted to pay tribute to Georges de Latour, the original French vigneron who helped put our region on the world wine map."  Helen Keplinger

Tasting Notes
The complex and layered nose begins with boysenberry, inky violets, and black licorice. A racy hint of spicy pepper and saddle leather emerge as the aromatics evolve. The inviting palate entices with a stunning grace and beauty - juicy blueberries and blackberries are interwoven with subtle floral notes. The balanced mouthfeel and round tannins continue to develop in the palate, with flavors of boysenberry, black tea, white stones, ink. The long finish persists for over a minute, with a touch of espresso, cocoa and dried fruits.

Winemaker Notes
The 2019 vintage was one of the cooler vintages of the last decade. Ample spring rains fueled healthy canopy growth and a crop that was nearly as generous as 2018. The first half of the growing season was moderate, and therefore somewhat extended. This allowed the vines time to slow their growth heading into veraison and maximize their nutrient uptake and pre-ripening photosynthesis. The second half of the season, in which the grapes ripen and are harvested, was warm, with some heat during the harvest period, leading to wines of incredible silkiness, fresh and pure fruit, elegant texture, and impressive length.

This boutique single-vineyard Cabernet is made in tiny quantities using ultra-premium fruit. We sourced the grapes from Beckstoffer's legendary Georges III vineyard in the Rutherford AVA. To do them and their terroir justice, we matured this wine in our finest French oak barrels, giving it a luxurious complexity while also honoring the vineyard's French founder.
