93Stephen Tanzer

Aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice and cocoa powder. Extremely primary and dense, with a salty complexity to the rich flavors of crushed berries, violet and bitter chocolate. Big, rich and tactile wine...

92Wine Spectator

Plush and layered, offering complex mocha and espresso flavors, with rich plum and blackberry fruit that’s supple and focused, elegant and detailed.

90The Wine Advocate

An exotic, voluptuous wine...wraps around the palate with serious depth. The 2009 is big, full-bodied and super-intense. ...has more depth and immediacy. Waves of fruit build to a huge, enveloping finish.

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.
