Napa Valley, CA

Heath and Carey Fear (Notre Dame Parents)

*Not yet available for release.

In the glass, the wine presents a rich, deep garnet color that is inky-purple to the rim. The nose is lifted and intoxicating, with notes of cassis, dark plums, graphite, and artisan chocolate.

On the palate, the wine is expansive and layered, with wave after wave of concentrated dark fruit that focuses on the blue fruit spectrum for which this vineyard is known. The mid-palate is velvety and silky, with impeccably balanced density that leads into a luxuriously long and powerful finish that lingers for minutes. This particular vintage expertly showcases the distinctive qualities of the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III and embodies everything that makes the Rutherford appellation so renowned. The wine's nuanced flavors, rich texture, and exceptional quality all speak to the region's unique terroir.

While the wine can certainly be enjoyed upon release with a decant, it will continue to evolve and gain further complexity over the next 25 years or more.
