"This medium to full-blodied, supple, polished effort has solid mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and a great finish. I’d happily drink bottles over the coming 10-15 years”
2019 The Black AcesCabernet Sauvignon
A dynamic Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant harmonious blend of each of our vineyard blocks. The fruit comes exclusively from our top tier vineyard sites and most exceptional blocks in Beckstoffer Georges III in Rutherford.
The Black Aces is ageable with structured tannin profiles, a great concentration of richness and power. It is a classic of its style. Aged in 65% new French Oak, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has initiated a restless urge to create great wines to rival the most exceptional wines of the world.
