A blend of 76% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, from two blocks in this incredible vineyard, the 2021 Cabernet Franc Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard sports a vivid purple hue as well as a thrilling nose of red and blue fruits, spring flowers, dark chocolate, and chalky minerality. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is medium to full-bodied, has a fresh, focused, elegant mouthfeel, plenty of tannins, and outstanding length. It’s tight and closed, but I suspect it will put on weight over the course of its élevage.
