Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossfire is sourced from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard located in the Oakville AVA. It possesses slightly more richness, texture and completeness than the Good Times, Bad Times. A deep purple color is followed by abundant notes of creme de cassis and flowers. This full-bodied wine touches all of the taster’s sweet spots. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years.
Andy Beckstoffer purchased the Missouri Hooper Vineyard from the Kelham family in 1996. Due to phylloxera, the vineyard was replanted to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and other mainly Bordeaux varieties. Missouri Hooper Vineyard origin lies in it being a part of the historic Vine Hill Ranch located north of the town of Yountville in the Oakville AVA.
