Winemaker Notes

Along with dark, rich aromas of mocha, chocolate and marinated cherries, the wine breathes out a vibrancy and aromatic brightness, laced with notes of incense, graphite, and toasting oak. These complexities carry through to the palate, where mouthwatering fruit flavors and subtle space notes meld with the smoky, ore-rich undertones. Even at this young age, the tannins are already highly polished, so the wine is immediately enjoyable. However, it will continue to evolve and improve with years in the bottle.

Blend: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2012 Proprietary Red Blend spent nearly two years in French oak prior to bottling. Notes of sweet licorice, red and blackcurrants, coffee bean, white chocolate, spice box and subtle oak are all present in this pure, nicely textured, medium to full-bodied, voluptuous 2012. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15+ years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Flavors of dried berry, cedar and fresh-turned earth come together on the finish, but this never sheds the firm, gutsy tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2027.

It began on back country roads and among the vines. The Beckstoffer family arrived in the Napa Valley in 1975 and the young son of a future pioneer spent his days in the vineyards throughout every growing season, cultivating deep roots.

Brought up to respect the land and its fruit, Tuck naturally sought out the practice of viticulture, learning from the masters around him. Much like his father before him, he is a farmer first. It was only after he mastered the art of first craft that he turned his attention to a second craft—winemaking. Over three decades after he first set foot in the valley, Tuck bottled his first wine. For him, it was not a whim or passion project, but the culmination of a life lived on the land, among the vines.  

Today, Tuck is one of the few Napa stewards who is both a grower and a winemaker. It is this pedigree that makes his approach different: the process begins with the land itself and culminates with a reverence for the winemaking traditions of the past—sharing successes and failures among fellow craftsmen and appreciating the fruits of their labor over a beautiful bottle of wine.
