...this Cab has plenty of flash in the ripe Cabernet fruit, rich oak, dense tannins and crisp acidity...

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon - Beckstoffer Vineyard X

Fleshy, full bodied, and quite complex in flavor; an excellent Cabernet, boasting of toast, caramel, dried berries, licorice, and tobacco. Long aftertaste. Unfiltered. 1,550 cases.

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon - Beckstoffer Vineyard X

An initial whiff of coconut yields to serious aromas of black currant, pencil, anise and smoke. Concentrated flavors of black fruit, redwood and spicy cedar. Long, peppery close.

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon - Beckstoffer Vineyard X

At a serious price such as this, one had better put a serious wine in the bottle, but no consumer will come away doubting the seriousness of this baby. The blackberry fruit is very intense and concentrated, with nice acidity and lots and lots of tannin. However, the tannin is fairly fine in grain, and the oak is largely absorbed by the fruit already, so this can be enjoyed now with commensurately serious food--such as a grilled steak
