The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is dark, sumptuous and racy. Silky tannins wrap around a core of dark stone fruit, chocolate, spice, menthol and leather. This is an especially supple, racy 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of up-front fruit, but fewer of the layers that are found in the very best wines in this range.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2029
Robert Parker 100
“Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard offers up a profound and singular nose of loam, rocks and iron ore over a core of black cherries, baked black berries and preserved plums with hints of licorice, dark chocolate, cedar, sautéed herbs and beef broth. Full-bodied, rich and demonstrating great depth with a wonderfully compelling personality, it delivers a multitude of savory meat and toast layers, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins. It finishes with incredible persistence, allowing those provocative mineral nuances to shine through.”
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2038
