Winemaker's Notes

This flashy, richly textured, round wine ends with a boatload of sweet, fleshy, black cherries and cocoa powder.

Missouri Hooper Vineyard origin lies in it being a part of the historic Vine Hill Ranch located north of the town of Yountville in the Oakville AVA.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossfire is sourced from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard located in the Oakville AVA. It possesses slightly more richness, texture and completeness than the Good Times, Bad Times. A deep purple color is followed by abundant notes of creme de cassis and flowers. This full-bodied wine touches all of the taster’s sweet spots. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years."
95 Points

"A heady mix of herbs, cedar and milk chocolate, it’s generous in black cherry and spicy pepper, a worthwhile textural challenge to the tongue and the mind, complex and layered. With smoky, heavy tannins, it’ll enjoy some time to think in the cellar, the finish still rich and thick. "

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
