2017 Taub Family 'Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$129.95 $149.95

The Taub family scored some Beckstoffer fruit and turned it into 95-Points with this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon by winemaker Tom Hinde. Hand-harvested and hand-sorted, the wine was aged just shy of two years in French oak, 50% new. It’s a full-bodied beauty with a firm background of fine, grainy tannins and concentrated, yet elegant flavors. Excellent acidity and stacked layers of red cherry, black currant, dark chocolate, licorice and dried herbs lead towards a long, savory finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Tones of compost, sage and baking spice accent this full-bodied wine, with a surprising freshness beneath its core of decadently soft red fruit. Showing plenty of structure and graceful length, it finishes on a crisp currant note.
