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.

The 2016 Poetic Justice Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard checks in as a blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18 months in heavy toasted, mostly new French oak. It's another superstar wine from this team and boasts a saturated purple/ruby color, awesome notes of black raspberries, crème de cassis, vanilla, incense, and flowers, full body, and loads of sweet tannins. It's hedonistic, deep, rich, and powerful, and just glides across the palate. It too will keep for 2+ decades.
