2018 was a great and consistent vintage and this wine represents the vintage and vineyard well. The wine offers richer dark fruit character with a tobacco and cocoa powder that is often associated with Rutherford Dust. It is full bodied wine with a well integrated tanin structure and a ripe balanced structure that lasts through the elegant finish. Young though approachable, the wine will continue to develop offer the next several years to a decade.
One of the oldest vineyards in Napa Valley, Georges II is located in Rutherford next to Caymus and in between Conn Creek Rd and Silverado Trail. Our block, B2b, runs right up adjacent to Silverado Trail with much more rock and dusty soil that tends to stress more than the inner trough portions of the vineyard.
