Rutherford, located in the valley floor heart of Napa, is one of the most sought-after locations for Cabernet Sauvignon production. It is the home to the Beckstoffer Vineyards George III, where some of the best Cabernets have been coming from for the past ten years. 12C is a single-vineyard that produces 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from fruit from this exact site. These wines have been aged in new premium oak and are exactly what every Napa Cabernet drinker is looking for. Winemaker Mike Smith, previously winemaker at Outpost and creator of Myraid Cellars, is a strong believer in allowing the grapes to have as little influence as possible, allowing Mother Nature to do the majority of the work.
