Youthful purple color. A heady bouquet evokes cherry, cassis, vanilla, licorice and fruitcake, with a spicy topnote. Fleshy and sweet, offering intense dark berry compote and floral pastille flavors lifted by cracked pepper and mineral nuances. Shows impressive power on the clinging, gently tannic finish, which features notes of vanilla and cocoa powder. This wine was aged in 75% new French oak.
A wonderful effort, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer George III Vineyard is 100% unfined and unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in 75% new French oak. It achieved 14.7% alcohol. Abundant minerality along with incense, creme de cassis and toasty oak characteristics are found in this full-bodied, fleshy, nicely layered Cabernet along with beautiful purity, wonderful fruit and surprising accessibility for a 2010. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)
Showing a real sense of kinship to its Spring Mountain sibling with regards to its lively, sweetly oaked, ripe-cherry aromas, Sojourn's George III bottling easily surpasses its partner when it comes to real palatal polish and sheer depth of flavor. It is fairly full without feeling too big, and it keeps its sights set on vigorous ripe currant and black cherry fruit all the way from beginning to end. It is underpinned by firm, but fairly fine tannins, and it has the unmistakable sense of a wine that is destined to age very well.
