Winemaker’s Notes | The deep purple-hued 2019 Amulet Estate Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon, from a larger, historic site in Rutherford, offers up a rock-solid nose of ripe dark fruits, damp earth, chocolate, and leafy herbs. This carries to a full-bodied 2019 with a round, seamless mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and solid length on the finish.
