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.

Coravin pour with 1.5 hrs of air. Hot damn this cab franc is outstanding. This is not a “taste like a cab” cab franc. This has true cab franc characteristics but is elevated by the beckstoffer farming. This is my favorite vintage of this dr crane cab franc and would love to try this against the macauley to kalon cab franc. 97+.
