International Wine Report


The 2018 Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Franc begins with inviting aromas of ripe dark berries, dark cherries and cassis, which are laced with exotic spices, tobacco and cigar box nuances all taking shape. On the palate this possesses a full body, which is well-structured and supported by velvety tannins. It displays notable concentration and depth with a core of ripe dark fruits and exotic spices that persist all the way through the long finish. Amici winemaker Tony Biagi has crafted a delicious Cabernet Franc which is accessible today, however I expect this will become even more compelling with just a few more years of bottle age.
