About Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet
Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a dense purple/blue color to go with more closed, backward (yet classic Missouri Hopper) notes of chocolaty dark fruits, tobacco leaf, espresso roast, and a hint of violets. Beautiful on the palate, it’s a powerhouse that offers a monster mouthfeel, ripe, silky tannins, and a great finish. Despite all its concentration, it stays nicely balanced and has a wonderful sense of freshness, which is the hallmark of the 2018 vintage. This beauty will evolve for 25+ years.
About Janzen Wines and Bacio Divino Winery
From the winery: After making Bacio Divino for nearly a decade, we introduced our Janzen Cabernet Sauvignons in 2004 to coincide with the first harvest of our own estate vineyards. Now comprising three distinct vineyard-designate Cabernets as well as an all Napa Valley Cabernet, our highly rated Janzen wines have developed their own following.
On the sun and vine-dappled slopes of the Napa Valley, overlooking the town of St. Helena, we took a chance. Possessed with an unshakable desire to create something of our ‘own’, and to make an impression both immediate and lasting, we embarked to produce a signature wine we could be proud to put our name on. It was 1993 and wine had a twinkle in its eye.
The act of winemaking involves equal parts mystery and mischief. With this combination at play, we came up with not just one, but two, proprietary blends. First and foremost, Bacio Divino – a divine kiss of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the added dimensions of Sangiovese and occasionally other varietals. And, in 1999, its vivacious kid sister, Pazzo, was set loose; a Sangiovese-centric blend with undercurrents of Merlot, Syrah, and a touch of our estate Cab.
Ever curious, we later ventured towards single varietals resulting in our namesake Janzen (2004), Vagabond (2004), and Lucie (2009).
Twenty vintages into our small family-run venture, we are immensely proud of our wines. Each acclaim humbles us, yet the desire to single out, blend, taste, and create drives on. With hard work, we have made many things come true. We hope you will find your own favorite amongst ours and that enjoying each will prove effortless.
