2016 Schrader "Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1389567 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a famous valley floor site that’s always one of the first to ripen, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon GIII Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 90% new French oak) offers incredible purity and finesse as well as a kaleidoscope of crème de cassis, exotic flowers, graphite, and forest floor. It’s deep, has building, sweet tannins, no hard edges, and again, this fabulous purity and floral character that develops with time in the glass. It will benefit from short-term cellaring and should evolve for three decades. My money is on it being the finest version of this cuvée ever made. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is so balanced and tensioned with firm and silky tannins and an iron backbone. Medium to full body. Savory. Long and spicy. Walnut skin and hazelnuts at the end. Delicious already. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon GIII is deep garnet-purple in color with boisterous black fruits notes of crushed blackberries, warm black plums and blackcurrant cordial with touches of cedar chest, roses, tilled black soil and tar plus a waft of cloves. The palate is big, rich, full and packed with black fruit preserves and exotic spice notions with a velvety frame and a very long finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Densely packed, with red and black currant, açaí berry and plum paste flavors, lined with singed alder, tobacco, leather and warm earth notes. The finish features a deep well of fruit, as the earthy tug lingers. An assertive expression of Cabernet that remains grounded in terroir. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
