“BECKSTOFFER VINEYARD GEORGES III” CABERNET SAUVIGNON, RUTHERFORD
Taub Family Vineyards
Rutherford, Napa Valley
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Taub Family Vineyards was born out of a dream four generations in the making. It’s a story that began during a pivotal time in U.S. wine history, just days after Prohibition was repealed, and one that is far from completion. The latest chapter is now unfolding as Proprietor Marc D. Taub and his son Jake explore some of California’s most exciting appellations.
Wine has always been the centerpiece of the family’s narrative and livelihood and Marc D. Taub grew up with a deep appreciation for the art of winemaking. His grandfather Marty played an instrumental role in the wine business from the early 1930s, and Marc’s father David later joined Marty’s side to build upon his dream. Marc always knew he would follow in their footsteps. This came to fruition in 2013, when Marc acquired Napa Valley producer Heritance – which later evolved to Taub Family Vineyards. The winery represents some of the best sites in Napa Valley. Each wine embodies a pure expression of its respective AVA and vineyard microsite and are crafted for elegance and extraordinary balance.
The valley oak pictured on the label, a familiar part of any Napa Valley landscape, honors the family’s provenance, while the diamond at the base of the tree represents the seed planted for the legacy of generations to come.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
AVA: Rutherford, Clones: 337 and 7, Rootstock: O39-16. Located between Conn Creek Road and Silverado Trail within the Rutherford AVA. Alluvial soils. Gravelly, sandy loam.WINEMAKING & AGEING
Grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and hand-sorted. Cold soak lasts for 3-5 days, followed by approximately 14 days of fermentation with three daily pump-overs. Fermented to dry on skins with an additional 7 to 14 days extended maceration to optimize the flavor, mouthfeel and tannin structure of the wine. Drained, pressed, and transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing. Aged for 22 months in 75% new French oak.TASTING NOTES
Deep blackish purple in color with a seductive aromatic bouquet of blackberries, dark cherries, and red currants intermingled with perfumed floral notes, tea leaves, cedar, and clove spice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is dense, deep, and seamlessly layered, displaying loads of delicious, ripe dark and red fruit flavors intermingled with savory herbal accents, subtle toasted oak, and earthy minerality. The intense, packed palate is framed by fine-grained tannins and a bright, lively backbone, leading to an elegantly balanced, long-lingering finish.
