2012 Myriad "Beckstoffer Georges III" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1190861 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A red with blackberry and mineral character. Some phenolics too. Full and silky. Very stylish. Handmade. (JS) Inner quote mark (7/2015)

91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby. Crushed dark berries and mocha on the nose. Dense, sweet and tactile, with seriously rich, dark flavors of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and roast coffee. Really saturates the palate. Tannins are at once sweet and savory, leaving the finish with a surprisingly juice quality and good lift. I would not have guessed that this wine was carrying alcohol in the low 15s. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Centered on a rich, vibrant, lively core of juicy blackberry. The ripeness and acidity complement the raw and coarse texture, with the fruit providing plenty of power and expression. The tannins lean toward the rowdy side. Drink now through 2028. (JL) Inner quote mark (8/2015)
