2017 Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Dr Crane ‘Elysian’ Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena AVA, Napa Valley
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 150 cases produced.
Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, Clone 337
Dark red fruit on the nose, dense, concentrated, pure fruit driven with woven spices and minerality on the long and winding finish
A supple palate of dark berries, dark plums, fig, tobacco, a streak of licorice right down the middle. Crushed gravel lift in the mid palate plays off the natural acidity, leading to spectacular tannin management. The Elysian bottling has a slight sweetness and a seemingly never-ending skyscraper finish as its grand finale.
Located in the heart of the Napa Valley, this prestigious Napa Valley vineyard sits on the alluvial fan of the Sulphur Creek river bed. This well-draining site with valley floor depth consistently produces powerful, concentrated wines with a gravely grip and hints of anise and plush classic Cabernet red fruit. A well-loved rock star in our portfolio, the Elysian bottling of this wine is a later harvest pick in the vineyard and a personal selection of premium French Oak barrels.
