California experienced a fifth year of severe drought conditions in 2016. The vines responded with fortitude and the vintage was a standout for Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, offering an intensity of flavor and depth of concentration that harnessed the full potential of the region. Moderate summer temperatures allowed sugar levels and flavor development to progress slowly and evenly. A few brief heat spikes gave way to a cooler than normal August, allowing for longer hang times without rapid sugar accumulation. Vineyard Georges III basked in the hot, dry conditions, and the fruit ripened naturally to a condition of exceptional flavors and ripe tannins. The resulting wine is bold and rich, with ample structure. In 2016 they were able to pick at optimal maturity to create a beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with silky smooth textures that showcase the classic Rutherford Dust.
