Good deep ruby. Deep, sappy aromas of cassis and bitter chocolate. Thick, round and rich, with almost port-like flavors of cassis, violet and licorice pastille. A bit fiery on the end but there's enough (natural) acidity to give shape to this extremely rich cabernet, which is from old clone 4 vines. (ST)
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Grand Daddy is quite a bit richer and deeper, with more tannins than the regular To Kalon bottling, most of which can be attributed to the old clone 4 vines in this part of the vineyard, known as Block A2. Tar, licorice and smoke are some of the nuances that frame the finish. This tannic Cabernet Sauvignon is long on power, but finesse and character prove to be more elusive. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)
