97pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes bounding out of the glass with baked black plums, blackberry pie and ripe blackcurrants notes plus hints of rose hip tea, cedar, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with taut, muscular black fruits, featuring a solid frame of grainy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing on a lingering exotic spice note. 125 cases were made.

97pts Jeb Dunnuck

This vineyard did exceptionally well in the vintage, and the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard has more sexiness and opulence than most of the vintage. Revealing a dense purple color as well as a blockbuster-styled bouquet of crème de cassis, blueberries, candied violets, spring flowers, and tobacco, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a round and expansive texture, sweet tannins, and one heck of a great finish. This sexy, opulent, yet also perfectly balanced and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well for 20-25 years.

95pts James Suckling

A creamy and juicy red with blackberry, blueberry, crushed-stone and some tile character. It’s medium-to full-bodied. Lovely balance and finesse for a To Kalon red. Drink or hold.

Winemaker Notes

A beautiful iteration from this legendary Oakville vineyard, the 2018 To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is intense and racy, with complex peppercorn notes on the nose along with savory stone fruit and hints of roasted plums. The palate is full yet delicate, with flavors of dark pomegranate syrup, savory mushroom, and wet clay minerality. Plush, sweettannins carry through the long, herb-filled finish.
