This is extraordinary on the nose with cold stones, minerals, wet earth and fresh spices. Full body, incredible backbone of tannins, and great length. It really lasts for minutes. When you taste it, it brings you down to the root and soul of the wine. Extraordinary. This is what To Kalon is supposed to taste like.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and again aged in 100% new oak. The production is slightly higher than the Dr. Crane at 500 cases. This opaque colored wine offers up blueberry liqueur, crème de cassis, coffee bean, roasted meats, and a floral note. It is rich, powerful, dense and primordial, but wow, is it spectacular! Produced from clones 4 and 337 of Cabernet, this is another 30-year effort and a great classic. Drink through 2045. (RP) 98+
Realm's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard is wonderfully nuanced and layered throughout. Violets, lavender, smoke and cedar add shades of complexity to a core of dark blue/purplish fruit. The 2013 finishes with substantial tension and energy, all good signs for the future. (AG)
A bold, rich, layered expression of cedary oak–shaded Cabernet, with powerful loamy earth, dark berry and spice notes that are deftly balanced but a long way from full maturity. The finish opens to reveal tightfisted black and green olive flavors. (JL)
