*ONLY 200 CASES MADE!

2015 The Debate Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane
Wine Advocate 99
- "Deep inky-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard reveals a beautiful, floral nose of violets and potpourri wafting over the expressive core of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and blackberries plus hints of pencil lead, tree bark, Chinese five spice and Sichuan pepper. The palate is simply mind-blowing, offering this incredible intensity, depth of black fruit and spicy flavors in a wonderfully elegant medium to full-bodied palate, with exquisitely fine tannins to frame and bags of freshness on the finish. Very impressive Cab!"
Jeb Dunnuck 98+ - "Starting off with the 2015s, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane is primordial and backward, with a deep purple color and barrel sample-like notes of blueberries, tobacco leaf, liquid violets, plums and damp earth. These give way to a huge, unctuous and sweetly fruited beauty that has the telltale sweetness of fruit of the 2015 vintage (the wine is completely dry) as well as a deep, concentrated mid-palate, ample underlying structure and a massive finish. Forget bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two to three decades."

 

2015 The Debate Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon
Wine Advocate 98
- "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard sports a deep garnet-purple color and earthy/broody nose of blackberry preserves, beef drippings, charcoal and plum pudding plus hints of forest floor, cedar box and stewed tea. Big, full-bodied and full-on powerful on the palate, this is a wine that won’t disappoint the hedonists! It wears the rich, generous fruit well, with firm, velvety tannins and just enough freshness to frame the fruit, finishing with epic length."
Jeb Dunnuck 100 - "The star of the three 2015s is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon and this sensational wine is pure perfection in the glass. Offering an off-the-charts bouquet of blueberries, black cherries, incense, graphite, cigar wrapper, and flowers, it’s ripe, unctuous and gorgeously concentrated on the palate, all while staying ethereal, elegant and seamless, with no weight or heaviness. Utterly sensational stuff, it’s already a joy to drink, yet is going to benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades or more. Given its power and richness paired with an incredible elegance, it reminds me of the 2009 Haut Bailly. Bravo!"

 

2015 The Debate Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper
Wine Advocate 98
- "Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missourri Hopper is youthfully mute, offering glimpses at fresh blueberries, red and black plums and mulberries with hints of underbrush, loam, cedar and cardamom plus a touch of dark chocolate. The palate is wonderfully intense and elegant, revealing fresh berry and earth layers that are superbly supported by very ripe, fine tannins and the right amount of freshness, finishing long with mineral nuances."
Jeb Dunnuck 96 - "Cut from the same cloth, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper is marginally more open and complex, and offers sensational notes of incense, crème de cassis, dried flowers, vanilla and exotic spice. Sweetly fruited, supple and incredibly sexy, with no hard edges and full-bodied richness, it’s already impossible to resist, yet is going to be even better in 3-4 years and cruise for two decades."
