The nose leaps from the glass showing violets, red currant, black cherry, and boysenberry, underpinned by savory graphite, lead pencil and tobacco. Ultra-silky on the palate, showing high notes of red currant and hints of cherry, to dark fruited blackberry and boysenberry, all seamlessly integrated with forest floor, graphite and spice box woven through the everlasting finish.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper is a huge, dense wine packed with black fruit, chocolate, leather, grilled herbs and earthy tones. This potent, virile Cabernet offers tons of character. I would give it at least a few years in bottle. This deep, plush Cabernet has a ton to offer.

Lastly, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard comes from a great site in Oakville that continues to fly slightly under the radar yet produces brilliant wines. Incredible cassis, graphite, damp earth, and violet notes emerge from the glass, and this full-bodied beauty offers plenty of high-end oak, ripe, seamless tannins, and flawless balance. It just screams of Cabernet. There's no harm drinking bottles today, but I'd nevertheless recommend a solid 4-5 years of bottle age. It should keep for two-plus decades.

Showy, with hyperripe boysenberry and fig compote notes leading the way, layered with roasted vanilla and melted licorice. Features a violet streak in the background that gives it some purity, while the fruit drives through on the saturated finish. This is for fans of the style. Drink now through 2032. 600 cases made.
