Another tour de force is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard, from a vineyard I continue to think is underrated. Blackcurrants, chocolate, tobacco, and a Graves-like earthiness all emerge from this full-bodied, beautifully layered, textured 2019 that’s already impossible to resist. Unfortunately, there are a scant 1,800 bottles made, but it’s well worth seeking out.
