The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon comes from one of the valley’s greatest sites and is all Cabernet Sauvignon still aging in new French oak. It has an ethereal yet powerful style that carries awesome crème de cassis, liquid violets, lavender, and flowery incense aromas and flavors. With a massive core of fruit, ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a heavenly finish, this is Napa Valley magic all the way.
Barrel Sample: 97-100

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This comes from B, D and F blocks among Beckstoffer's sections of To Kalon vineyard, all of which sit atop ancient riverbeds. The vines are strictly managed to one cluster per shoot, which I think made all the difference in 2018. This barrel sample of the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon gives a very deep purple-black color, opening with an earthy/meaty nose of mossy tree bark, wild fungi, fertile loam, chargrill and aged beef over a core of Black Forest cake, baked blackcurrants and warm plums with a waft of cigar box and wonderful floral nuances emerging with coaxing. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with muscular black fruits and earthy accents, framed by firm yet beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins tannins, finishing epically long and fantastically fragrant. WOW!
