CS MH 2016 JD 99


Jeb Dunnuck


Just about perfection in a glass, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is another straight-up fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon from this great, great vintage. From a valley floor site just south of To Kalon, it offers La Mission Haut Brion-like notes of tobacco, lead pencil, and cold fireplace as well as sensational cassis fruit, full body, building tannins, and a deep, layered, sexy texture that needs to be tasted to be believed. It has the purity and elegance that make 2016 special yet also offers density, depth, and opulence. Don’t miss it!
