98pts Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is brilliant and delivers that rare mix of opulence, sexiness, and seamlessness that only Napa can do. Off-the-hook aromatics of blackcurrants, chocolaty oak, smoked tobacco, espresso, and damp earth all soar from the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth while staying light on its feet and perfectly balanced. It shows the more focused, elegant profile of the vintage yet still plays in the style of this estate and is a big, opulent wine. I love it today, particularly with a decant, but it will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for over two decades.

97pts Wine Enthusiast

With a juicy entry of powerful concentration, intensity and structure, this complex and intensely satisfying wine is grippy and gravelly in texture. Impressive acidity balances the power, with an umami-like richness that seemingly lasts for days. Enjoy from 2028–2038.

96pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard has a gorgeous perfume of dried lavender, rose hip tea, tilled soil and fallen leaves, over a core of cassis, black cherry preserves and cinnamon toast. Full-bodied, firm, fine-grained and super intense in the mouth, it has lovely freshness and a long and opulent finish.

Winemaker Notes

The 2018 vintage features a beautiful purple hue that sheets the glass indicating a full-bodied, concentrated beauty! Perfumed aromatics of clove, barrel vanillin, black cherries and currants fill the senses with anticipation. The palate is expansive and full bodied with fine grained tannins and a lengthy finish that lingers for minutes. There is no pocket of the mouth unfilled or escaping this wine’s sumptuous composition. Anticipated maturity is 2024 to 2039.

Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
