There’s a whopping 20 barrels of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard, which comes from a site just beside the Dr. Crane Vineyard in St. Helena. Incorporating 17% Petite Sirah, it’s a sensational Cabernet Sauvignon that blends power and finesse. Deep black (and some blue) fruits, toasty oak, chocolate and hints of lead pencil shavings all give way to a seriously concentrated, yet also incredibly elegant and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that’s going to cruise in the cellar.

The 2013 Kata Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard is dense and powerful, but at the same time, the aromatic upper register that makes this wine so compelling is much less expressive than it was last year. Perhaps the 2013 is still recovering from its bottling over the summer. There is plenty of depth to the explosive, inky blue and black fruit, mocha, chocolate, spice and leather notes. Today, the 2013 is showing just the barest hint of what it showed from barrel. (AG)
A new entry, this wine emerges from a Beckstoffer-owned vineyard right next to his more famous Dr. Crane Vineyard in St. Helena. A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Petit Verdot, the wine has a dense purple color and a big, sweet kiss of pen ink and graphite as well as blueberry and blackberry fruit. Sweet tannins, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, super-duper purity and a multi-layered finish of close to 45 seconds make for a terrific Cabernet Sauvignon from this great vintage. Drink it over the next 20+ years. (RP)
