RATINGS

96+ The Wine Advocate

...fragrant cassis, plums and blueberry preserves with violets, earth and bay leaves suggestions. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers pretty perfumed black fruit in mouth with firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory.

95Jeb Dunnuck

...rocking notes of blackcurrants, chocolate, tobacco leaf, and damp, gravelly earth...beautiful purity of fruit, ripe tannins, and just everything in the right place...a stunning wine.

91Vinous / IWC

...ripe, jammy and plush... Dark raspberry jam, chocolate, menthol, licorice and spice and front are center in this attractive, mid-weight Cabernet from Stewart.

91James Suckling

Attractive aromas of spice, rose petals and chocolate-like oak with a rich, dark-berry core in the mouth and smooth, easygoing tannins that make a silky, approachable finish.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena, Dr. Crane Vineyard

Dr. Crane Vineyard was originally planted in 1858 by Napa Valley pioneer Dr. George Belden Crane. It was acquired by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1997. Located in the city of St. Helena, the 25-acre vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Beckstoffer Vineyards owns and farms more than 3,600 acres of highly prestigious grape growing vineyards in Napa Valley, Mendocino County and the Red Hills of Lake County. A senior executive with Heublein in the 1960s, Andy Beckstoffer is credited with steering Napa Valley vintners towards improving farming and the quality of the grapes used for wine. Grapes from any Beckstoffer vineyards are considered among the finest available in California.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
