    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Beckstoffer delivers aromas of dried pear and cranberry that pass on to comforting flavors of cocoa and deep black cherry with toffee notes. It's lively but with full weight throughout the mouth, ending in succulence and renewal for the palate. The tannins are persistent yet not aggressive. We anticipate the supple texture to improve for six years or more and the flavors should become increasingly complex during that time. This wine is well served accompanying a roast duck, pork, or lamb cut, particularly with a plum and berry reduction sauce.

    "Dark, healthy red. Superripe aromas of bitter cherry, flowers and cola, with a suggestion of aged steak. Ripe, concentrated and full, with dark berry, black cherry and spice flavors offering lovely sweetness. This is almost Cote de Nuits-like in the way it combines density and weight with tang and verve. Finishes long and sweet, with the tannins covered by raspberry, spices and earth. The crop level here was reportedly just 1. 5 tons per acre, and it shows."
