"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard impresses for its polish, energy and overall tension. The flavors are bold, incisive and finely-cut throughout. Hints of lavender, mint, spice, licorice and inky blue/purplish fruit are some of the many notes that are laced into the finish. What a gorgeous wine the 2014 is shaping up to be. After a few lackluster vintages at Dr. Crane, things seem to be looking up for this bottling. -AG"

VINEYARD: Beckstoffer Dr. Crane In St.Helena, Napa Valley. Planted on gravelly, alluvial soils, Cortina and Bale loam.

FERMENTATION: Hand Harvest, night picked. Fermented in closed top stainless steel with indigenous yeast. Spontaneous malolactic in barrel.

AGING: 20 Months in French Oak barrels, 100% new. Unfined and Unfiltered.

VINTAGE REPORT:2014 was the third straight outstanding growing season in a row, following the excellent 2012 and 2013 vintages. Dry winter and spring conditions limited canopy vigor, and a warm growing season with a lack of extreme heat spikes resulted in prolonged, even ripening through harvest. The resulting wines possess great site specificity, depth and quality.
