Justice Frontier Justice Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2018
|California, Napa Valley
More chocolate, baking spices, and flowery blue fruit notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Franc Frontier Justice Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, another full-bodied, beautifully balanced wine from this team. A blend of 77% Cabernet Franc and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 83% new French oak, it's already drinking nicely, yet its balance as well as its fine tannins all point to it evolving gracefully for 15-20 years.
This is an earthy interpretation of this wonderful grape from a well-respected site better known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Cedar, dried herb, black olive and cocoa powder highlight a hearty frame of supple red fruit, crushed rock and dark chocolate, finishing in a bold tannic structure.
