Waypoint Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Thick in sage brush, dried herb and earth, this wine is powerfully built and unabashedly ripe. Dark black fruit, mocha and graphite notes arise along the thick, intense palate, leading to finishing touches of slate and iron. Cellaring will help to tame the tannins; enjoy from 2028-2035.
The Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III is deep and inky to the core. Blackberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, sweet French oak, spice, new leather and licorice are all kicked up in this unabashedly flamboyant, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. There is not a whole lot of subtlety here, but there is plenty of intensity as well as immediacy.
A well-built Cab, with cassis and bitter plum notes showing a racy edge. Lively savory, singed alder and iron notes streak the finish, adding length and energy. Best from 2023 through 2034. 166 cases made.
Just a classic expression of this vineyard with its pure Cabernet dark fruits, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and cedar pencil-like aromas and flavors, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard hits the palate with a charming, forward style carrying loads of sweet fruit, full-bodied richness, and integrated tannins. This is a plush, undeniably delicious Cabernet to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.
