Beckstoffer’s Dr. Crane vineyard in Saint Helena, plus smidgeons of the revered To Kalon (!) in Oakville, and a couple of dashes from choice parcels in Rutherford and Coombsville are the sources here… that’s a lot of Napa royalty for only $49.95! Winemaking is directed by the one and only Philippe Melka, with a couple of his top proteges, Maayan Koschitzky and Matt Sands lending their hands as well. 96% cabernet sauvignon, with a boost of aromatic prettiness from 4% cabernet franc.
From Napa’s monumental 2018 vintage, this is something to enjoy now and for the next decade! This is an inky, velvety, and powerful cabernet from some of Napa’s top vineyards and fashioned by some of Napa’s preeminent winemakers. Loaded with blueberry and mocha notes, dusty tannins, and mixed berry pie, framed with earthy nuances of black pepper, bay leaf, and thyme – delightfully complex and hedonistically rich, just unbeatable at this price! Grab more than you think and thank us later! This opulent wine is just hitting its drinking window and will delightfully grow and expand further over the next decade. If you like cabernet or that classic culty Napa style, this is not to be missed!
