Our 2011 Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon gracefully melds the elegance and vibrancy of Napa Valley’s cool 2011 growing season with the deeply flavored, muscular-structured Cabernet Sauvignon grapes of world-renowned ToKalon Vineyard. Complex notes of forest loam, suede leather, coffee bean and graphite layer the black currant, blackberry and ripe plum aromas. The wine’s intense, dark-fruit flavors explode on the palate and then firm, sculpted tannins carry them through the long, expansive finish by sculpted tannins. Beautifully integrated toasted almond, mocha, caramel and clove notes from new French oak barrels embrace the rich fruit expression.
