From the famous George III vineyard, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard has a haunting bouquet of cedar wood, juicy blackcurrant jam and forest floor.  A soil note enhances the overall picture.  The wine has gorgeously sweet well-integrated tannins, no evidence of new oak (as it's so well-integrated), a plush, voluptuously textured full-bodied mouthfeel and a knockout finish.

This is sensational wine that can easily be a modern-day version of one of the great BV Private Reserves from decades ago, although in this case it's aged in French oak, not American.  Kudos to Mike Smith.  Look for this to drink well for 20 or more years.

Drink:  2014-2035
