2011 Tor Kenward Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon
This is truly unlike any To Kalon wine that we have ever made before because of the addition of the Cabernet Franc. This shows a tremendous bit of tobacco, earth and spice (think a mix of Graves/Pessac in Bordeaux and Oakville Cabernet). This is a little bit less forward and giving right away. It will need some additional air time to show all that it has. With time, this may very well end up being one of (if not the) favorite To Kalon wines for me to drink. This may also be the longest lived wine we have made from this vineyard.
“The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is quite a bit different from previous vintages. The poor Cabernet Sauvignon set resulted in a higher percentage than normal of Cabernet Franc, which brings with it an exotic range of aromas and flavors. Tar, licorice and waves of dark fruit are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. This is going to be a fascinating wine to follow.” – 89-91 Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
