Wine Advocate


Composed of 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Cabernet Franc Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard sports a deep garnet-purple color. It shoots from the glass with very focused notions of baked black plums, candied violets, warm blueberries and Morello cherries with hints of aniseed and tar. Full-bodied, the palate is fantastically rich and concentrated, delivering a rock-solid backbone of super prim, wonderfully ripe tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long with impressive mineral, earth and exotic spice layers. 50 cases are due to be made.
