We are both honored and excited to be able to obtain our grapes from the “Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III” in Rutherford, Napa Valley, California. Because of its prime location and high demand, this vineyard is known for its production of many great Cabernets exhibiting the Famous “Rutherford Dust” mystique. Formerly known as the Beaulieu Vineyard No. 3, The Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III sits in the heart of the Rutherford AVA, which was originally planted by Georges DeLatour of Beaulieu in 1928.
The rows used are between the Silverado Trail and Conn Creek Road. The Northern/Southern exposure provides for Sunny Days and allows the warm temperatures to heat the soil producing great concentrated flavors, while still maintaining a complex character. Magically, this offsets the cool breezes in the late afternoon, which enable the ripening process to be more controlled in order to sustain the flavors.
