ALPHA OMEGA Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane 2016

The 2016 Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Cabernet is a step ahead of last years outstanding effort. Winemaker Jean Hoefliger has crafted an absolutely brilliant wine from this this renowned vineyard in St. Helena. It begins with seductive aromas of ripe dark currants and dark cherries that come together with tobacco, graphite, mocha, sage and a touch of licorice rounding out the nose. This is equally impressive on the palate, as it boasts a full body with gorgeous velvety tannins and outstanding overall concentration and depth. The mouth feel is voluptuous and layered, with a deep penetrating core of beautifully ripe dark fruits that expand seamlessly on to the long polished finish. This is another utterly compelling wine from Alpha Omega in this vintage, which is nothing short of tantalizing now, yet ishould also go on to have a magnificent evolution that could span decades.
