@Mark Flesher and I decided to do a 2014 Napa Cab battle from two of Napa’s top winemakers...TRB and Mike Smith.

In comparison to the Rivers-Marie, this was darker and more savory. There were crushed rock/graphite and charcoal toasted blueberry and blackberry aromatics. Plush and inviting. On the palate, this was incredibly silky with beautiful structure. The palate showed Beckstoffer GIII typical notes of cinnamon, dust, baked black cherry and some cardamom. A wonderful and textbook example of this site from a talented winemaker. Bravo

George III is my least favorite vineyard from the Grand Cru Beckstoffer site however, @Mike Smith has done a magnificent job with this offering and changes all that. 2 hour decant and the tannins are supporting the wine and nearly not in play. I can’t get over the balance of this wine...fruit, acid and tannins are in perfect harmony. Nice offering!

Deep purplish ruby red. Looks insanely young. Tons of baking spices and dark fruits on the nose. Notes of creme de cassis, cinnamon, brown sugar, blackberries, and caramel. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Super rich palate with tons of black fruits, blackberries, black currants, spices, and baking spices. Does not want to quit. Dry and long finish. Drink till 2035.

No edge to be found, in a surreal state. Rich and complex. Plum, toasted oak, mocha and a spicy element fill the palate. Smooth and silky. Love how it show all the details yet has focus. The finish is one of the longest I've experienced, well over a minute after you finish. Pairs well with Frank Sinatra live from the Sands playing on vinyl.

Tasted blind and this was wine 2. This was given a four hour decant.

Deep purplish ruby red. Definitely more complex on the nose, more than just fruits and baking spices. Started off with a kind of sweet bread and had some more savory undertones such as wood, herbs, and tobacco. A strong mid-nose with black currants, raspberries, baking spices and purple floral notes like lilac and lavender. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied. Well balanced and great structure from the acidity. Layered palate with a bit of minerality in the attack before moving onto red berries, both bright and dark. A slight pinch in the long and lingering finish. Drink from 2017 till 2032.

When it came down to guessing straight away you could tell this was different than the first wine. More structure and complexity. Felt like it had a bit more age as well as less black and blue fruits. With the Georges III wines we have tried it has been pretty consistent that there is more red fruits and a bit of minerality like this one. So we decided on the 2013 Myriad Georges III.

@Mike Smith thanks for spending the afternoon with Jen and I. Not sure I need to say a lot, its Mikes Wine! Just all around a superb wine-full bodied and lush in the mouth. Savory hint of fresh herbs and muddled blue fruits. Wonderful, soft finish showing great balance of tannins and fruit.
