Wine Advocate


A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc aged 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is very deep purple-black in color and has a nose of seductive crème de cassis, baked black cherries, dried mulberries and blueberry compote with touches of tapenade, Indian spices, sandalwood and potpourri plus a hint of tea. The palate is full, rich, velvety and spicy with layers of savory and spice flavors, finishing long and complex.
