RATINGS

98James Suckling

...red fruit, plums, crushed stones and spices. Full...and focused... Shows the stony character with polish.

97Jeb Dunnuck

...sweet, Pauillac-like bouquet of blackcurrants and cassis as well as tobacco, cedar pencil, and flowery incense. This carries to a ripe, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with wonderful purity, ripe, velvety tannins, no hard edges, and the vintage's ripe, supple, yet incredibly elegant style front and center...gorgeous...

96Vinous / IWC

Silky tannins and plush contours are all kicked up in this large-scaled, opulent Dr. Crane Cabernet. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, new leather and licorice build into the sumptuous finish.

93-95+ The Wine Advocate

...bold notions of baked black plums, blackcurrant cordial and blackberry compote with hints of clove oil, dark chocolate, cast-iron pan and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, soft and juicy in the mouth, it has loads of mineral nuances coming through on the long finish.

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.
