Purlieu Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Purlieu’s 2017 vintage from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard delivers pure indulgence from start to finish. Rich blackberry and dark blue fruits on the nose explode into cascading layers of luxurious black fruit, sun-kissed berries, and sweet spice on the palate. Satin tannins and balanced acidity sustain the rich aromatics with seamless, concentrated power and persistence.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper features flamboyant notes of crème de cassis, blueberry pie and red currant jelly with nuances of sautéed herbs, tar and underbrush with a waft of pencil lead. Full-bodied, firmly textured and laden with muscular fruit, it has loads of earthy accents and a chewy finish.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer- Missouri Hopper is another potent wine in this lineup from Julien Fayard. Powerful, dense and explosive, the 2017 has quite a bit of potential. All the qualities of this site are amped up in a rich, hedonistic Cabernet that captures the flamboyant style of the year very nicely.
