CS MH 2016 WA 97


Wine Advocate


Very deep garnet-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard charges out of the glass with bold, expressive blueberry compote, black cherries, crème de cassis and hoisin notes with hints of Chinese five spice, dusty soil, licorice and camphor with a waft of smoked meats. Full-bodied with a gorgeous plush texture and seamless freshness, the palate is laden with black fruit and exotic spice layers, finishing very long and very fragrant.
