Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Sourced from favored rows within the acclaimed C2 block of Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this elegant wine exudes class and refinement. It is dark violet in hue with aromas of blueberry, lavender, balsa, wet stone, vanilla and biscotti. Velvety tannins give this wine a luxurious mouthfeel that is punctuated by bright elegant flavors of boysenberry pie, mocha, pipe tobacco, salted caramel, and shale. A refined finish of black fruit, tar and wet earth persist for more than a minute long. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth.
Wine SpectatorYoung and powerful, with explosive, wall-to-wall flavors that are deeply extracted and firmly tannic, centered on gutsy dark berry, currant, anise, cigar box and cedar. Presents a potent aftertaste. Needs time. Best from 2020 through 2034. 638 cases made.
