Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$349

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard has a Mission Haut-Brion-on-steroids character, as it seems to be all gravel pit. Loads of wet pebbles, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a full-bodied opulence, and just a killer, skyscraper-like mouthfeel and stunning finish make for one of the most provocative and fabulous wines in this portfolio. Drink it over the next 25+ years. This is world-class and can stand up against anything made in 2013, as could the following wines as well. Robert Parker

Incredible wine. Everything you could want in a California Cabernet. This wine will drink well for 20 years.

Really incredible wine tonight. Lovely blue and black fruit followed by tannins that are well integrated.

We were looking for a Cabernet that was young, sexy and racy to go with grilled steaks. This fit the bill. It was decanted for 2 hours prior to serving. On the nose you get graphite, blueberry, blackberry. On the palate the tannins and fruit are in balance. Beautiful young wine that will age gracefully for at least two decades. If you have this in your cellar, I would recommend opening a bottle. If you don't have this in your cellar, buy a bottle.
