Sojourn Cellars 2015 Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

The 2015 Napa growing season began quite early, with some of the earliest bud break dates on record. Uneven spring weather and four years of drought led to smaller yields, and the reduced crop load possessed an abundance of concentration and finesse. The famed Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in Rutherford benefited from producing smaller clusters and tiny berries. This resulting 2015 vintage wine is marked by intense dark color, robust aromatics and excellent overall fruit character. The classic Rutherford Dust profile shines in the wine’s dark cherry, earth and mocha flavor profile. Impress your friends at your next dinner party with this remarkable bottling.

The 2015 vintage started with a bang – an unusually warm winter and dry spring promoted early bud-break, with severe drought conditions continuing throughout the growing season. Cabernet Sauvignon responded by producing loose clusters and smaller berries, with an abundance of flavor and ripe tannins. It was one of the earliest harvests on record with lower than average yields. The resulting wines display tremendous finesse, depth and aromatic intensity. Vineyard Georges III basked in the hot dry conditions, and the fruit ripened naturally to a condition of exceptional flavors and ripe tannins. The resulting wine is bold and rich, with ample structure. In 2015 we picked F-Block in two separate sweeps, taking the ripe clusters first and letting the others hang longer to reach optimal maturity. The individual components were then blended to create a beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with silky smooth textures that showcase the classic Rutherford Dust.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 Points
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III sports a medium garnet-purple color and offers up gregarious scents of red and black currants, black forest cake and camphor with touches of Chinese five spice, pencil shavings, new leather and tobacco. Full-bodied, richly fruited and laden with exotic spice laced black berry flavors, it has a solid backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and harmonious freshness, finishing with fantastic persistence."

Wine Spectator - 91 Points
"Tightly wound, with a trim mix of dark berry, gravelly earth, cedar, sage and licorice flavors, ending extracted and chewy, showing a savory herb hint."
