Fairchild George III Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012  - First Bottle


94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Not to be missed is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon G-III, which comes from the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III. This shows notes of roasted coffee, blackcurrant fruit, is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, toasty oak and a velvety finish. Drink it over the next decade or more.
92 Vinous -
The most powerful of the Fairchild Cabernets here, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges III races across the palate with intense dark fruit, grilled herbs, smoke and iron, all in a rich, powerful style built on serious intensity. The Georges III loses just a bit of persistence on the mid-palate and finish, but that is a relatively small critique for a wine that delivers so much pleasure.
