Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard exhibits a rocky, stony, gravelly, hot pebble-sort of nose that I often associate with wines such as Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. Beautifully sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit along with a note of lead pencil shavings jump from the glass of this opaque purple-colored, full-bodied, intense wine. This brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon should evolve gracefully for 25-30+ years.
Wine SpectatorBold, rich, intense and generous, with a perfumed, aromatic mix of ripe blackberry, currant, anise, sage and licorice. Full-bodied, gaining depth and richness on the finish, where this gains an even tighter focus. Drink now through 2020.
