Amazingly complex, with great structure, depth, richness and concentration. A young and powerful expression of Cabernet, with tiers of dried currant, wild berry, fresh earth and toasty, smoky oak, ending with a long, persistent finish.
From the back streets of St. Helena, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard exhibits earthy, graphite, and scorched rock-like aromas (the latter nuance reminiscent of top-notch Bordeaux Graves) as well as dense, full-bodied creme de cassis and floral notes. An impressive effort, it reminds me of a cross between a great Pomerol and a Graves. With a sumptuous texture as well as a full-bodied, long finish, this beauty should drink well for two decades.
Dense ruby-red. Powerfully scented, smoky nose of cherry, tobacco and incense. Deeply concentrated, chewy cherry and cassis flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and complicated by bitter chocolate and licorice. Sweet oak spice builds with air and carries through the finish. A serious, ageworthy cabernet that will require patience.
