Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 2010
JS97: This has a very spicy, dried-fruit character with blackberries and blueberries. Full body with chewy, powerful tannins. Gravelly and intense. Big and powerful. Try in four or five years. I love the contrast in this wine. Smells so ripe and intense. Crazy wine.
WA96: The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is rich, sumptuous and totally striking. It brings together all of the classic Dr. Crane qualities – expressive aromatics, silky tannins and voluptuous fruit, all with the crystalline purity of 2010. Juicy dark cherries, roses, sweet spices and crushed rocks are layered into the expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
