Dry and decadent

Raspberry fragrance upon opening. Great balance of blackberry fruit and earth.
Enjoyed the dryness.
Had this at my parents. Went to order more and saw it was sold out.



Bought a couple of cases upon release. This wine has only continued to improve over time. My only regret is that I am now down to my final couple of bottles. What a great CAB.



Bought a couple of cases upon release. This wine continues to improve. Sad to say, down to the last couple of bottles. A fabulous bottle of wine. Five stars.


Verified Purchase


I had no idea (until just now, as I came to write this review) that this was still available or I'd have ordered it again, with my last case that was just delivered today.

Lovely wine! Drinking so nicely right now (we didn't decant...just aerated as we poured). Balance is what mostly comes to mind when I think of this. Not finding it fruit forward now...rather a nice balance of fruit and tannins. I hope it's still around when I make my next order. Great price on a great wine.


Did it Wrong and it was Still Great!

Opened a bottle with friends the other night and all agree it was incredible. The nose on this was so beautiful. I had stored it at room temp since I bought it in 2010 and it was still wonderful. Too bad it was my last bottle.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It has body and nose right out of the bottle. But decant and wait several hours and you'll be coming back for full mouth feel, complexity, and magic. You have to wait several hours, even a day. It becomes a different wine altogether. I bought a couple extra bottles to cellar.

love wine from chicago, il

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Was expected lot more base on all the Gold metals.I like the lot 267 spring mountain better and it cost less.

Friend bought this off of Napacabs and brought 2 bottles. We drank this along with the 07' BV Tapestry and 06' Flora Springs Trilogy. What stood out for me was the excellent fruit - currants, raspberry, black fruit along with a nice medium long finish with firm tannins. My circle of drinkers are all longtime BV drinkers (Tapestry and Georges de Latour) and this definitely comes across Beckstoffer Georges III fruit. Not as complex as the Georges de Latour Private Reserve , but at 1/4 to 1/5th the price, this wine is a steal! Sorry about mentioning the vineyard, but I just wanted to let people know that if you're a Tapestry or Georges de Latour fan, this wine is for you. I can see this evolving nicely over the next 2-5 years. Buy some now for a more fruit forward wine or cellar it later and allow the tannins to evolve for a more complex wine. Well done.
