2015 Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon $125

From the B Block of Andy Beckstoffer’s storied Dr. Crane Vineyard, one of Napa Valley’s greatest terroirs, this wine’s brooding aromas of anise, clove, dark chocolate and savory forest floor mingle with notes of ripe black cherry, red currant, graphite and a distinct signature minerality.  Evoking magnificent entry antics, this structured, rich and intense Napa Valley Cabernet explodes across the mid pallet. Mike Smith’s signature vibrancy and long, multidimensional finish bring this wine to perfection. Aged 20 months in a combination of Darnajou, Taransaud, Marcel Cadet and Sylvain French Oak barrels, 100% new. Age 2-20 years
