A collaboration betweeen Benoit Touquette (winemaker for Realm, Hartwell) and David Beckstoffer of Beckstoffer Vineyards.
“”From a rocky site just next to the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, on the outskirts of St. Helena, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard incorporates a solid chunk of Petite Sirah and was brought up in plenty of new oak. It offers a deep, powerful bouquet of blackberry and blueberry fruits as well as loads of graphite, pen inky, violets, burning embers, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, ultra-pure, multi-dimensional, and incredibly layered, it’s a pure, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that would pass undetected in a blind lineup of top wine from the Graves region of Bordeaux. It’s going to evolve gracefully for 20 years. ” – Jeb Dunnuck
