"I love this valley floor site, and the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard is a brilliant wine on all accounts! Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a vibrant bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, spring flowers, licorice, and graphite, with loads of smoke tobacco and cigar notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied and concentrated, it stays fresh and lively on the palate, with terrific balance between its fruit, acidity, and tannins. It’s a structured wine that needs 4-5 years of bottle age, but it’s loaded with potential and should evolve for 2-3 decades."
