B Cellars

Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2017

B did a great job in 2017. This is an outrageously good cab franc. Big wine but tastes like cab franc. Minerality, hint of green, plush dark fruit. — 2 years ago

@Shay A 1st time trying. Really nice expression of riesling with plenty of acidity, dry,low alcohol (around 12%) wine. Notes of apples, some stone fruit, minerals, lemon, slate. Worth checking out.

@Jay Eagan Yes, fascinating to hear about his experience with Mondavi, help setting up Opus, how and why he got into winemaking, etc. The food and wine were good too! Cheers.
