Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer Dr Crane Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Grown on the west side of St. Helena, this distinctive cabernet sauvignon clearly displays its origins with a rich garnet hue and sophisticated aromas of cacao bean, crème de cassis, and sweet tobacco on the nose. Layered, with a superb structure, the wine offers impressions of blueberry coulis, black raspberry, and savory herbs like Herbs de Provence. The weighty mid-palate unveils anise spice and a graphite mineral note that combines with a fresh acidity that extends the long finish.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Rated 99:
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard was aged in 70% new oak this vintage, as opposed to 100% as it normally is. Deep garnet-purple in color, it rolls out of the glass with perfumed rose hip tea, fragrant earth and incense scents, giving way to a core of kirsch, blackberry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles plus a touch of iron ore. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has exquisitely ripe, finely grained tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing long and minerally.

James Suckling Review - Rated 96:
Lots of ripe, plummy fruit with orange peel, flowers and cherries on the nose. Some stones. It’s full-to medium-bodied with a round, juicy palate and a flavorful finish. Very attractive and well balanced. Drinkable now, but better in 2022 and onwards.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 95:
This has energy and intensity, with bramble-edged plum, blackberry and boysenberry paste flavors that saturate without being heavy, backed by anise and apple wood on the well-defined finish. A late flash of iron adds the final touch. Sneaky long. Best from 2022 through 2038.
