Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Andy Beckstoffer's To Kalon Vineyard is considered perhaps the best vineyard in all of Napa Valley. Soils, aspect, drainage, meticulous growing practices- all have a part in the remarkability of this site. Wines from this vineyard are renowned for incredible delicacy, finesse and elegance. Our Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is infused with the vineyard's signature minerality, red fruit and graphite.

Wine AdvocateAll three 2013s ratchet up the level of extract and seem even more focused and precise than the 2012s, and are rich, layered, full-bodied and super well-endowed. It's hard to have a favorite right now, although my early inclination is to go with the Beckstoffer To Kalon, since it's such a fabulous site. But the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper is similar and the Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the Dutch Henry Canyon area of Napa is also impressive. More on these when they are in bottle.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a big wine from a stellar vineyard in the heart of Oakville, sizable on the palate in billowy tannin, tobacco, black plum and milk chocolate. Full bodied in every way, it has a smooth, velvety nature that should soften further in time, allowing for a finish of compost and tea. Drink now through 2023.
