Primarily sourced from the famed Beckstoffer Georges III vineyard, this Cameron Hughes lot shows incredible value from a great vintage. Sweet and pure black raspberry and currant fruit are contrasted with ripe tannins and a gorgeous and savory finish.

Primarily sourced from a very famous vineyard in Rutherford, this Cameron Hughes lot shows incredible value from a great vintage. Sweet and pure black raspberry and currant fruit are contrasted with ripe tannins and a gorgeous and savory finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is sweet, focused and pure with ripe blackberry, raspberry and currant aromatics and an underlying sense of minerality. The palate is classically styled with pretty fruit and ripe tannins. We used about 40% new oak with this wine, mostly French with a tiny bit of Hungarian with a low to medium toast to lift the fruit. The result is a delicious Cabernet. It’s a classically styled Rutherford Cabernet notable for its faceted complexity, purity of fruit, and outstanding balance. Of course the best is yet to come and this wine will age gracefully over the next decade.
