Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard 2020
12 in stock
Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard 2020 is a stunning display of classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon originates from the renowned Rutherford AVA in Napa Valley and was created by winemaker Mike Smith. It is a limited production, with only 150 cases created in this vintage.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a tantalizing combination of blue fruit extravaganza on the nose with a soft and supple Rutherford dust mid-palate and cocoa tannins throughout. On the palate, the Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a vibrant and powerful expression of blue fruits. With extraction, intensity and dark berry liquor elements that dominate the flavorful palate, there is a wonderfully smooth and integrated tannic structure.
The grapes are sourced from the historic vineyard, Beckstoffer Georges III, which was first planted by Elizabeth Rutherford in 1895. The vineyard was replanted in 1988 with Cabernet Sauvignon clones 337, 4 and 15 and using tighter spacing and advanced trellising systems, this allowed for better quality and grape tonnage. The vineyard is situated with slight uplifts and rolling knolls, as well as 181 acres forever protected under a land conservation easement, meaning the grapes used to make this wine will remain in the same environment for years to come.
The climate in this AVA has proven to be ideal for producing bold, yet balanced flavors in Cabernet Sauvignon. The combination of diurnal temperature shifts and maritime influence provided by the close proximity to the San Pablo Bay, gives this classic varietal a beautiful combination of wild, ripe blueberry and black current with notes of baking spice and a deep, concentrated structure.
The quality of this wine is evident in all aspects of its production and Mike Smith has created a vivid cabernet sauvignon that is equally supple and full flavored. The wines of this small vineyard always show intense character and Myriad Cellar’s Beckstoffer Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is no exception.
