WA 98 AG 97 JS 94 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane moves more toward the wet rock, blueberry, raspberry fruit spectrum, but still stays dark and foreboding, very concentrated and full-bodied. The great terroir comes through and the wine is distinctive, singular, opulent and rich. Another fabulous success from Paul Hobbs and one more showcase wine for this great vineyard. Anticipated maturity: now-2032."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard captures the pure pedigree of this great site. Round and seamless on the attack, yet backed up by considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is utterly magnificent and complete. Blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, smoke, spices and menthol are layered into the voluptuous, perfumed finish. The 2012 is going to need time, but it is superb."
According to James Suckling - "Aromas of ripe blueberry, blackberry and mineral. Black currants too. Full body, silky tannins and bright acidity. Very intense and linear with loads of fruit that are held together with a solid tannin backbone. Better in 2017." 14.7% ABV.
