The 2019 Carte Blanche Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% varietal makeup. Sitting in the southwest corner of Oakville and at the base of the Mayacamas, Missouri Hopper Vineyard, owned by Andy Beckstoffer, is the home of our Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose leaps from the glass showing violets, red currant, black cherry, and boysenberry, underpinned by savory graphite, lead pencil and tobacco. Ultra-silky on the palate, showing high notes of red currant and hints of cherry, to dark fruited blackberry and boysenberry, all seamlessly integrated with forest floor, graphite and spice box woven through the everlasting finish. 600 cases produced.
