2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper


To stand out among the lineup of 2017 Cabernets is a Herculean achievement for any wine. The Hopper delivers and then some. A full and permeating bouquet of Christmas spice, black fruits and dried strawberry are wrapped in roasted cocoa bean and black mission fig aromas. The palate is laced with a similar combination of fruits but with enticing vanilla bean and lead undertones. This wine is layered and structured perfectly. We recommend a hearty decanting if enjoyed in the first few years. At the 8 to 10-year mark, we will see this wine further developing and hitting stride. A legend in the making.
