Robert Parker's Wine Advocate notes:
Beckstoffer Dr. Crane
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard reveals a quasi-La Mission Haut-Brion, smoky, hot rock, gravelly component as well as medium to full body, plenty of blueberry and black currant fruit, and a juicy mid-palate. While it does not have as much complexity as some offerings from this vineyard, there is enough here to merit an outstanding score. Moreover, I think it will last for a decade or more.
Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper
nother excellent effort, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missourri Hopper is not as explosively fruity as the To Kalon, and plays it closer to the vest. Concentrated and medium to full-bodied with silky tannins, plenty of blue, red and black fruits, and good overall equilibrium, it should drink well for 10-12+ years.
Beckstoffer To Kalon
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard possesses a similar dense opaque purple color, slightly sweeter creme de cassis and boysenberry fruit, terrific purity, a full-bodied texture, silky tannin and nicely integrated wood and acidity. This beauty should drink well for 10-15 years.
