2019 Frontier Justice 'Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard' Cabernet Franc Napa Valley

$250.00

This is already so delicious, it’s easy to imagine how much pleasure its future holds. Racy and inviting, it does a terrific job expressing the character of this famous vineyard with silky tannins and soft curves. Aromatics of dried flowers, cedar and mint surround a core of red and blue fruit with sweet tobacco.

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 2019 Cabernet Franc Frontier Justice Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is another racy, inviting wine that beautifully captures the essence of place. Silky tannins and soft contours wrap around a core of red/purplish berry fruit, sweet tobacco. Dried flowers, cedar, mint and sweet pipe tobacco fill out the aromatics nicely. The 2019 is very well done, not to mention an absolute delight to taste today.
