Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$289

One of Napa Valley's most collectible Cabernets - very limited98 Points Robert Parker: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard boasts a sumptuous nose of blueberries, black raspberry jam and wet rocks that provide a hedonistic blast of fruit as well as exceptional minerality. With glorious richness in the mouth, fabulous purity, a skyscraper-like texture and an elegant style without heaviness, this sensational and compelling Cabernet Sauvignon should be one of the superstars of what looks to be a vintage loaded with big hitters. It should age effortlessly for 20+ years...Looking at several 2012 barrel samples reinforces the true greatness of this vintage in Napa Valley. The first-growth Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in the hands of Paul Hobbs can be magical and I had high expectations for the 2012 version."

Docta Crane! Massively rich and nuanced, eloquently designed with oak spice pleasantly integrated. Ripe tannin from a bit vintage. Another Hobbs classic.

This is what we dream of in expensive Napa Cab. Smells like a rich man's leather wallet, cigar box, and rich, decadent, opulent fruit, black plum.

Blackberries, dark cherries, bitter chocolate, anise, boysenberry, with pepper and tobacco. Tannins are velvet. So fortunate.

Awesome. 30min decant. Drinking excellent. Not seeing any reason to wait on these unless you want no tannins.

Wow,holy schnikes! This is as close to perfection as you can get. Every sniff, every mouth full, every finish is amazing and ever improving upon itself. Decanted for 60 minutes and drank with a caveman style 2lb tomahawk steak.
