The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon emerges from another first-growth vineyard that was acquired by Andy Beckstoffer in 1993, and planted with multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. The original vineyard was planted in 1868, but the present one consists of nearly 90 acres. The 2012 reveals incredible complexity and density with notes of Christmas fruitcake, baking spices, licorice, crème de cassis and forest floor. Full-bodied with the vintage’s opulence and drama, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was fashioned from Clones 4 and 337. (RP) 97+
Amazing aromas of wet earth, blackberry and porcini mushroom. Tar too. Full body, ultra-polished tannins and a long and intense finish. Licorice and berry character. Pure Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard is the most powerful of the single-vineyard Cabernets in the range, but is also the most overtly ripe and oaky. As excellent as the To Kalon is, it just doesn't have the totally seamless balance of both the Farella and Dr. Crane. In truly great wines, nothing stands out. Here, both ripeness and oak appear pushed too far. (AG)
Exhibits complex tiers of blackberry, licorice, cedar, earth and berry pie. Expansive and elegant for its size, this is impressive on the finish, offering impressive length and breath of flavors, tightening on the finish. (JL)
