2016 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1408491 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is very deep garnet-black in color and gives a truly profound nose of chargrill, pencil lead, crushed rocks and tar with a core of crème de cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and mincemeat pie with wafts of cardamom and cumin seed. The powerful, full-bodied palate gives a firm, ripe structure to match the incredible concentration of fruit, finishing long and earthy. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

Outer quote mark From a rocky site outside of St. Helena, just next to Las Piedras, the stunning 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) boasts a deep, gravelly, intellectual profile that’s reminiscent of the 2015 Haut Brion on steroids. Blackcurrants, chocolate, cold fireplace, and smoke tobacco all flow to a full-bodied, deep, layered, lengthy Cabernet Sauvignon that takes plenty of time to unwind in the glass. This is structured, backward, and deep, with serious power, yet it excels in its complex and layered style just as much. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very flamboyant and luscious on the nose with fresh herbs, such as thyme and sage. Full body and layers of ripe fruit and richness. Polished yet powerful. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is also one of the most impressive wines in this flight. Rich, heady and explosive, with tremendous intensity, the 2016 hits all the right notes. Lavender, spice, menthol, licorice and black plum are nicely pushed forward, but more than anything else, I am struck by the wine's energy and pure power. This is such a gorgeous wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This has concentrated richness and a mix of baked plum, mocha and thick cherry compote. From the famous site, it twitches in minerality, from crushed rock to tree bark and cedar. The full-bodied intensity is met by a balance of racy acidity that sizzles around accents of black pepper and leather. (VB) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark We take a step toward freshness with Realm's bottling of St-Helena’s Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard. I found this to be the most well integrated wine at the tasting, with its acid and tannin structure, textured body and long finish all working together and pulling equal weight. Boysenberry jam mixes with cocoa nibs and wet gravel. The finish cleans up nicely but still leaves a presence of cedar and coffee. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
