Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (1500ml)

$589

Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane moves more toward the wet rock, blueberry, raspberry fruit spectrum, but still stays dark and foreboding, very concentrated and full-bodied. The great terroir comes through and the wine is distinctive, singular, opulent and rich. Another fabulous success from Paul Hobbs and one more showcase wine for this great vineyard. Anticipated maturity: now-2032. Robert Parker

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.
