2016 Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Dr. Crane ‘Elysian’ Cabernet Sauvignon 

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena – Napa Valley

Just..drop the mic!  The barrel program and vine selection from the most southwestern edge of the Dr. Crane Vineyard make up this game-changing Cabernet Sauvignon. Full of verve and energy, this wine pushes the spectrum of dark, black fruit and spice notes. Hints cigar box, sage and crushed graham cross check all senses. Gorgeous notes of blackberry, dark black raspberry, currants, clove &  anise are coupled with black cherry liqueur that  explode on the mid palate. A completely captivating floral/rosemary note follows ,touching the edges of your soul. The gravely river bed soils of this vineyard site keep the tension and tannin refined with just enough grip to dig in your heels. While a deep, dense and addictive finish shines twice as long as anything in the Myriad profile. A magnificent expression of this remarkable vineyard.
