A gorgeous, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! Athair’s 2012 ‘Georges III Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon comes from one of the most prized vineyards in Napa Valley that produces fruit with the famous ‘Rutherford Dust’ aromatic profile. Deep violet in color, this wine opens with attractive notes of dark cherries, blueberries, and blackberries with hints of cobbler, dark chocolate, sandalwood spice, and smoked nuts.
