The Beckstoffer delivers aromas of dried pear and cranberry that pass on to comforting flavors of cocoa and deep black cherry with toffee notes. It 's lively but with full weight throughout the mouth, ending in succulence and renewal for the palate. The tannins are persistent yet not aggressive. We anticipate the supple texture to improve for six years or more and the flavors should become increasingly complex during that time. This wine is well served accompanying a roast duck, pork, or lamb cut, particularly with a plum and berry reduction sauce.
