Mike Smith, who we sometimes call “Mr. 100 Pointer” (Carter Cellars, Myriad, Scarlett, Bench, etc.), has taken the Beckstoffer Georges III vineyard’s stunning fruit and produced an equally stunning wine for 12C. Incidentally, 12C get’s its name from Twelve degrees Celcius or Fifty-five (55) degrees Fahrenheit, which is the optimum storage temperature for wine.
