2007 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Napa Valley

We had been searching for two years for a valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard that would complement our Mountain Cabernet program.  Early in 2007 we were lucky enough to be offered a prime section of this vineyard by Andy Beckstoffer.  2008 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. CraneOur block sits on the edge of an old creek bed that once carried rock and gravel from the side of Spring Mountain.  Here, a perfect mix of drainage and stress produce a wine with "Wow" factor.  Dark garnet translucently extends from the core to the rim.  Scents of crystallized blackberries, pie cherries, scorched earth and Crème Brule leap from the glass and integrate into the mid palate.  The mouth feel of this wine coupled with subtle restraint is intoxicating.  If the mid pallet grabbed you watch out for the finish – it will seal the deal.  Concentrated dark and red fruits from across the spectrum married with chocolate form a long and powerful finish that sails on, leaving echoes of exotic clove, toast and graham cracker spice.

This wine will offer immense pleasure upon release and will age effortlessly for years to come.  Don’t age it too long, as its youthful flamboyancy should be enjoyed.  A very impressive young wine.
