A producer to watch! The 12C wines are crafted by Mike Smith, who, thanks in part to Beckstoffer fruit, now has five 100-Point wines under his belt for Carter Cellars. We flipped for this wine’s notes of dark chocolate, Italian amaro, ancho chiles, and black cherry syrup. It has such indulgent, sweet Cabernet fruit we simply couldn’t resist it. You won’t be able to either!
All from a warm site and clone 7 that's brought up in 100% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III offers a beautiful nose of cherries, red currants, vanilla bean, toasty oak, and spice. It's ripe, opulent and sexy, with sweet tannin and a charming, sexy beauty to drink over the coming 10-15 years.
