Winemaker Notes

The color has a dense purple hue and is accompanied with copious amounts of intense aromatics across the red and blue fruit spectrum. The nose is full of barrel spice, scorched earth and Ecuadorian cocoa powder. The mid palate swings for the fences with its multi-layered pure glycerol nature and keeps pumping out waves of intoxicating fruit. Perfectly ripened tannins dazzle throughout this wine and lead to one of the most decadent and amazingly long finishes we have ever made.

A long decant is recommended in its youth due to barrel influenced tannins and body, however look for it to become a tour de force wine in the next 8-10 years.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck
The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Elysian and it's a barrel selection made by Mike chosen with the goal of the most seamless expression of the vineyard. It offers insane notes of crème de cassis, licorice, blackberries, violets and hints of toasty oak. Full-bodied, beautifully balanced, ultra-fine and pure, with terrific tannin, it's another great, great wine from Mike that's going to evolve for 25+ years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made up entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Elysian opens with cassis, blackberry preserves and incense with touches of cigar box, dried herbs, earth and smoked meat. Full-bodied and tightly wound in the mouth with firm, grainy tannins, the wine has many layers ready to spring and a mineral note on the finish.

Blueberry and blackberry with hints of lavender and clove on the nose. Medium to full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink in 2020.

St. Helena is in the heart of the Napa Valley, nestled between Calistoga to the north and Rutherford on its southern border. On its western side, the Mayacamas Mountains guard it from the cooling effects of the Pacific Ocean; to its east stand the Vaca Mountains. In conjunction, these mountain ranges serve to lock in summer daytime heat. But in the evening, cool air from the San Pablo Bay funnels up through the valley, creating very chilly nights. It isn’t uncommon for temperatures to drop 50 degrees, a shift that promotes a balance of sugar ripeness and acidity in wine grapes.

St. Helena contains a plethora of different soil types in a small area, which have been enhanced over centuries by rain runoff from both mountain ranges. Its vineyards cover a variety of terrain, spreading across the bucolic valley floor and its benchlands.

These ideal topographic and climatic growing conditions easily caught the attention of early winemaking pioneers. In fact, St. Helena is the birthplace of Napa Valley’s commercial wine industry. Dr. Crane founded his cellar in 1859, David Fulton in 1860 and Charles Krug in 1861.

Today there are no less than 400 separate vineyards planted within the 12,000 acres that make up the St. Helena appellation.

Revered most for its red wines based on Bordeaux varieties, namely Cabernet Sauvignon, the St. Helena appellation is also a source of superior Syrah, Zinfandel and Sauvignon blanc.

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.
