98+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of Morello cherries, crushed blackcurrants and fresh blackberries plus suggestions of rusty nails, Indian spices, unsmoked cigars and cedar...full-bodied palate delivers stylish, impactful black fruit and exotic spice layers...grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on that signature, lingering mineral note.

98+ Jeb Dunnuck

Bouquet of cassis, tobacco, damp earth, spice, and spring flowers. Flawless on the palate, with full-bodied richness and building, ultra-fine tannins...incredible purity of fruit, no hard edges, and is just pure Napa Valley magic.

96James Suckling

This has an intense, spiced nose of stewed blackberries, cloves, licorice, dried thyme, ink and bark...full-bodied... Creamy layers of ripe and stewed black fruit and dried herbs. Crushed walnut and chocolate, too. Excellent depth of flavor throughout.

95Vinous / IWC

Bright and punchy, the 2018 opens with striking aromatic intensity. A rush of inky red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender, mint, mocha and sweet spice builds as this mid-weight, racy Cabernet shows off all of its appeal...classy and impeccably balanced from start to finish.

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.


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.
