2009 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Napa Valley

The Dr. Crane vineyard site’s ability to perfectly ripen Cabernet Sauvignon grapes earlier than most vineyards played out well in the late 2009 vintage.  2009 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. CraneHarvest was a full two and a half weeks later than 2007 and delivered the best fruit I’ve seen from this historic piece of Napa History.  Deep, dark and purple to the rim in the glass, it also carries a natural clarity which a good indicator of the wines overall well being. The first impression is loaded with the signature scents of blackberry fruit, cassis, mocha, and a distinct minerality that comes from the heavy graveled soils in the vineyard.  Rich and fully integrated fine tannins coat the mid palate and push through to a finish framed by rich Napa Valley fruit and barrel toast.  The overall balance in this wine gives you a glimpse into its core; pure, deep and lush.

Look for this wine to come together with a little bottle age causing it to fill in with further complexities.  Like previous renditions, this wine will drink well with some short term bottle age or decant time but will reward those who can wait 3-10 years.
