ToKalon, Dr. Crane, Vineyard X, Beck VI...these are some of the most hallowed lands in all of Napa Valley and they all have one thing in common: they are all owned and farmed by the Beckstoffer Family. Tuck Beckstoffer, the prodigal son of this great grape-growing family, is the only member of the family that produces his own wines, sourcing from the family's holdings throughout Northern California, sourcing row by row. Having grown up in these vineyards, and in many cases planting them as a young man, Tuck knows which are the best parcels of the best vineyards in Napa. This lot is a selection of the best barrels of Mockingbird, Tuck's super-small cult Cabernet Sauvignon label started in 2006 and quickly rising as a must for "in-the-know" collectors and restaurateurs. Built on the lost art of blending, Mockingbird is a vineyard selection, blended together so the sum of the sites produces a greater wine that the sites do on their own. Only five cases will be produced, available only at Premiere, and what is left will be blended back into Mockingbird, never to be sampled again.
