Cabernet Sauvignon

5 cases produced


  • A vineyard-designate wine from only three acres within the 300-acre Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III
  • This historic vineyard was first purchased by Beaulieu founder Georges de Latour in 1928
  • Crafted by winemaker Tom Hinde and proprietor Marc D. Taub
  • This exquisite, classic Cabernet Sauvignon is aging 24 months in 100% new French oak

The Taub family's roots in the California wine business date back to the days following Prohibition. We honor that heritage with this unique wine from the historic Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III. This 300-acre parcel, first purchased by Beaulieu Vineyards founder Georges de Latour in 1928 and called Beaulieu Vineyard Number 3, was home to BV's Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignons made by the renowned winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff. This was purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1988 and today the grapes are grown using sustainable practices. Crafted by winemaker Tom Hinde, this 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 24 months in 100 percent new French oak resulting in a highly complex wine with firm structure.
