Our secret weapon is out. Our magic rows of Cab Franc in Beckstoffer's Dr. Crane Vineyard delivered big-time in 2013.

Parker swooned for the 85.7% Cabernet Franc and 13.3% Cabernet Sauvignon from two Beckstoffer vineyards, Dr. Crane and To Kalon. Beautiful floral and blueberry notes soar from the glass. Soft tannins, super-intensity...the wine is ethereal, elegant, pure and glorious to drink already."

Integrity, quality, honesty and trust. These are the core values of the Bounty Hunter and the mantra for the Justice trio. With almost 15 vintages crafted expressly for Bounty Hunter, we couldn’t be prouder of the track record of our own flagship brand. They hang with the very best of the Napa Valley.

Andy Beckstoffer’s Dr. Crane and To Kalon vineyards are Napa Valley royalty, first recognized for their greatness in the 19th century. They are two of the most purely alluvial vineyard sites in the valley, making them true Napa Valley Grand Crus. It isn’t just hype or fashion that causes wines from these vineyards to receive legions of 100-point scores every year; it’s the fact that these are simply magic vineyard sites, ones that have helped elevate brands like Schrader, Carter Cellars, Paul Hobbs, Realm, and Myriad to superstar status. Our long and enthusiastic partnership with these vineyards dates back almost 15 years, and the track record of our Justice wines now speaks for itself. Justice is served.

Wine Advocate

The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Frontier Justice is a blend of 85.7% Cabernet Franc and 13.3% Cabernet Sauvignon from two Beckstoffer vineyards, Dr. Crane and To Kalon. Beautiful floral and blueberry notes soar from the glass of this Cabernet Franc-dominated wine. Soft tannins, super-intensity, but not a lot of weight or power, the wine is ethereal, elegant, pure and glorious to drink already. It should continue to evolve and drink nicely for another 10-15 years.
