98pointsThe Debate 2013 Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Made by Jean Hoefliger, this is one of three Beckstoffer vineyard-designates meant to spark debate. It is dusty and inviting in spicy cola cinnamon and clove. The tannins are polished and soft, and ultimately elegant, as a core of juicy cassis glistens in supportive acidity, lingering brightly along a firm, well-defined finish. Virginie Boone
