Winemaker Notes

This historic vineyard is located on the valley floor at the southern boundary of the Oakville AVA. Intensely concentrated, classic cassis and black cherry fruit flavors are framed nicely by caramelized oak and dominate the palate. Features of mocha, loamy earth, cedar and tobacco fill in to create an incredibly complex wine reflective of the most timeless and classic Oakville Cabernets.

Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Janzen Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is from another Oakville site. This wine offers up much more unsmoked cigar tobacco, wet gravel/minerality, crème de cassis, licorice and graphite. It is full-bodied, intense, multilayered, gorgeously pure and long. It can be drunk early on, or cellared for 30+ years.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
From another of Andy Beckstoffer's sites in Oakville, Missouri Hopper is a mix of cassis, kirsch and leather, its full-bodied structure marked in generous toasty oak. Tea and leather provide a savory edge, balancing the richness of the red fruit. Drink now through 2023. Cellar Selection
JS 94
James Suckling
Lots of tar, asphalt and blackberry aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy and polished tannins. A rich and intense wine with a lot of alcohol but shows form and tension. Better in 2019 but impressive now.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Intense and powerful, supple and graceful, with moderate tannins. Offers ultraripe blackberry and black licorice flavors without losing velocity. Drink now through 2028. 212 cases made.

For 25 years and longer, I've had a wine glass molded to my right hand. Today, my head has a permanent tilt from holding my very prominent nose over the alluring aromas and beckoning colors of many of the world's great wines. If I haven't tried every one, I've certainly made it a passion to attempt to taste of them all. Over this third of a lifetime, I've come to know and respect many great wine makers around our little world, and now clearly understand the relationship between an individual's character and his wine. You've read or heard about many of these people - men and women who are born to search for perfection, who scowl at the notion of compromise. These same people channel their character into their wine - their individuality, their uniqueness, their propensity to create rather than to plagiarize. Eminent character seems kindred to noteworthy wines...

Being so motivated, I longed to create a distinctive, noble wine. In the California tradition of working with the new to improve the traditional, I looked to achieve a way of broadening the distinctly majestic flavors and aromas of the king of Napa Valley's varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the years I've had the opportunity to experiment with various lots of Cabernet, and I eventually settled on the hillside fruit from Ahollinger vineyards in the Mount Veeder area. This vineyard produces a bold and expressive, yet elegant wine. In 1992, we discovered the Sangiovese fruit of Cal Showket in the Oakville appellation, and were literally overwhelmed by the intensity of what resulted in our first crush in 1993. To embellish the color and acid levels of the Sangiovese, we crushed and macerated this fruit with one and a half tons of the best Petite Syrah fruit I had ever sampled.

As time aged each of these wines, and molded their individual character, I was able to determine a blend that married the elegant, yet rich and softly oaked Cabernet with the Sangiovese's long and linear tannins, at the same time elevating the cherry, berry Sangiovese fruit to a pronounced level. The resulting wine showed that a whole could be greater than it's individual parts. And so...'Bacio Divino', a divine kiss, was born.

Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
