Overview of the Wine
Locanda Estate is a shielded, hillside reinforced vineyard estate, tucked tightly into a 3 sided crevice, deep in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Having its own unique micro-climate, it is ideally suited to produce our unique, low production, cellar worthy wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep garnet-purple colored, 100% Cabernet offers up a beautifully expressive nose of baking spice and delivers decadent notes of fresh blackcurrants and warm plums, and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of lavender and fresh thyme. Full-bodied mouth, it offers firm, ripe and muscular tannins, with great freshness with a long elegant finish. Built to age 15+ years.
96 Points - Ian Blackburn
Georges III is a very sought after block that was being sold to Schrader for Old Sparky. There is so much going on in the nose of this wine; it also tells me that its best days are years ahead and I love how this effort is unfolding. Compact tender tannins line a juicy fruit expression that is only possible from exceptional fruit. Check all the typical Napa Cabernet boxes - but this wine goes so much deeper and resonates its qualities long after tasting. Color is 14/15, Aroma 24/25, Body 24/25 and Overall is 34/35 - Better in 2024 and ages until 2035 but enjoyable now.
