“Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (readers may remember the 2002 merited a 100-point score) has a beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit note, a hint of incense, charcoal, an opaque purple color, full-bodied opulence and again that first-growth quality, richness, complexity and intensity. I’m not sure this is as compelling as the 2002, but it’s not far away. This is a magnificent, multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years. ”

Sourced from favored rows within the acclaimed C2 block of Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this elegant wine exudes class and refinement. It is dark violet in hue with aromas of blueberry, lavender, balsa, wet stone, vanilla and biscotti. Velvety tannins give this wine a luxurious mouthfeel that is punctuated by bright elegant flavors of boysenberry pie, mocha, pipe tobacco, salted caramel, and shale. A refined finish of black fruit, tar and wet earth persist for more than a minute long. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth.
