Purchased by Beaulieu founder Georges de Latour in 1928, and later purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards, the Georges III Vineyard produces an amazingly complex and elegant wine due to a higher clay content in the soil which retains water, keeping the vines cool in hot Rutherford temperatures.

The perennially impressive Georges III fruit contributes classic structure and length here-the wine savory and elegant in quiet red fruit and gravelly rock. Rounded and rich on the midpalate, it retains plenty of fresh underlying acidity to remain fresh and focused, finishing in a fist of black pepper.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard is also gorgeous, with a big core of blue fruits, graphite, tobacco, and earth. With tons of flavor intensity, a stacked mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish, it shows the elegance of the vintage yet also offers beautiful deep, dense levels of fruit.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III is very deep purple-black in color and slips sensuously out of the glass with notes of warm blackberries, black raspberries, cassis and Indian spices plus suggestions of underbrush, fragrant earth and tapenade. Full-bodied, the palate has firm, grainy, tight-knit tannins and good tension, with bags of juicy black fruit and a long, understated finish.

Nicely focused, featuring a beam of cassis and cherry puree flavors, lined with tobacco, red licorice and roasted alder notes. Shows a touch of old-school loam on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2032.
