Winemaker Notes

The Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard sits on the southern boundary of the Oakville AVA. This historic vineyard site on the valley floor is one of Napa Valley’s oldest grape growing sites with its initial planting dating back to the late 1800’s. The 2015 vintage offered a low yield, but excellent fruit quality with great skin to juice ratios. Perhaps our most decadent and age-worthy offering, a deep core of black and red fruits envelops the

palate. Notes of coffee and toffee dominate with hints of licorice and bramble. A very long finish with abundant tannins will greatly reward those with the patience to cellar this wine. Expected drinking window of 2019-2035.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon delivers gorgeous plums preserves, black currant cordial and blackberry pie scents with hints of pencil shavings, baking spices, dried mulberries and raisin cake. Very big, rich and full-bodied in the mouth, the palate is laden with fruit cake and dried berry flavors sparked by spicy accents and framed with soft, fine-grained tannins, finishing very long with a provocative mineral hint. 171 cases were made.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon grown in this Yountville-area site, this is red-fruit forward, full bodied and expansive in waves of flavor and complexity. Compressed tannins round out the structure and powerful grip.

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.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
