The Vineyard:
Located in Rutherford on the east side of the valley floor, the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard boasts a pedigreed history that dates back to the late 1800s. We source the grapes for our Schrader GIII from a small, specific section of the vineyard that was formerly a natural riverbed. The gentle slope and unique gravel and rock composition of this block produces stunning fruit with phenomenal concentration and character. We truly feel we have found the ideal “sweet spot” of this historic vineyard estate.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Presents a rich, deep, juicy core of blackberry, plum and currant notes, shaded by spicy, cedary oak and dusty herb and earth flavors. Finishes with a long gush of fruit that cascades on the palate.—2006 California Cabernet blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2028. 125 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2016)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer George III Vineyard offers an extraordinary bouquet of creme de cassis, scorched earth, and burning embers as well as full-bodied power, velvety tannins, and exceptional density and richness. This superb wine exhibits layered extravagance and sweet tannins, a rarity in this vintage. It is already drinking well." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (21st Dec 2008)
