Vice Versa Magnificent 7 2015
It is difficult to find words to adequately describe the magic of The Magnificent Seven. After a strict declassification process, we use only the best juice from the heart of each block to compose this breathtaking rendition of our vineyards working in harmony with one another. Intellectual, complex, and incredibly concentrated, this is a wine of paradox and balance. Density, richness, and audacity are seamlessly interwoven with poise, finesse, and a sense of weightlessness that is mesmerizing. With such a limited quantity available, it is an experience to be cherished.

Wine AdvocateA blend of “the best of” Beckstoffer’s Las Piedras, Dr. Crane and To Kalon vineyards, 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Magnificent Seven sports a deep garnet-purple color and rock star nose of crème de cassis, baked plums, plum pudding and mulberries with hints of Chinese five spice, menthol, dark chocolate and dusty soil. Full-bodied and jam packed with expressive black fruit voices, it fills the mouth with exotic spice and earthy accents, finishing with a grainy texture and bags of character. 25 cases only were made.
