PAUL HOBBS CABERNET SAUVIGNON DR. CRANE VINEYARD ST. HELENA NAPA VALLEY 2012
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.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is dark, plump and juicy, with plenty of near and medium term appeal. Silky, soft and open-knit, the 2012 Dr. Crane is a good example of the year. Drink this supple, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon over the next handful of years. In 2012, the 100% new French oak is evident, one of the clues the vintage is slightly lacking in concentration.Drink 2017 - 2027. Oct 2015 Antonio Galloni
