Winemaker Notes

The 2005 exhibits a deep black-crimson color and inviting aromas of boysenberry, black cherry and dried herbs. Despite significant tannic structure, the palate is already showing generous, concentrated flavors of perfectly ripened black and red fruits interlaced with graphite, freshly baked bread and white pepper. The intense fruit and spice elements persist through a memorable finish, complemented by firm tannins and a touch of acidity. Alcohol 15.3%

Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard
Dr. George Belden Crane is credited along with Charles Krug, as one of the major founders of the wine industry in Napa Valley. The vineyard was planted in 1858 in an area that became the Chinatown district of Santa Helena during prohibition. Characterized by gravelly loam soil, it was replanted with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals in 1998 when Andy Beckstoffer acquired it. We released our first vintage from the Dr. Crane Vineyard in 2003.

"Amazingly complex, with great structure, depth, richness and concentration. A young and powerful expression of Cabernet, with tiers of dried currant, wild berry, fresh earth and toasty, smoky oak, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2013."
Wine Spectator

"Earthy, graphite, and scorched rock-like aromas (the latter nuance reminiscent of top-notch Bordeaux Graves) as well as dense, full-bodied crème de cassis and floral notes. An impressive effort, it reminds me of a cross between a great Pomerol and a Graves. With a sumptous texture as well as a full-bodied, long finish, this beauty should drink well for two decades."
