2016 Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III ‘Empyrean’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2016 Empyrean barrel selection from our Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III blocks is a brooding, black-garnet beauty that is a testament to the potential for power, breadth and pedigree offered by this remarkable vineyard. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it boasts vivid varietal character beginning with an enticing nose bursting with cassis, black currant and dark roast coffee. An explosion of blue fruit extravaganza, mocha with undertones of toasted graham and Rutherford dust weave beautifully throughout the mid palate. A backbone of graphite and baker’s cocoa and beautifully fine-grained tannins frame from beginning to end, supporting, broadening and lengthening this exquisite wine.  Give this showstopper a year to integrate, evolve and uncover hidden nuances/layers. A remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon from twenty-sixteen!
