Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
I thought the Jenzen Cabernet Sauvignons showed brilliantly. The 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color followed by notes of creosote, burning embers, wood spice, forest floor, blackberry and cassis. It is full-bodied with great intensity and a long, rich, concentrated finish.
Floral and soft, with a substantial foundation of leather and black licorice, this is a tremendously seductive wine, layered and complex, with years to go in terms of structure. Already it offers velvety tannins and dreams of blackberry patches gone by, finishing with succulence and a taste of pure dark chocolate. Cellar through 2022.
Intense and vibrant, with a zesty mix of vivid wild berry, blackberry, crushed rock and licorice flavors, ending with a long, tapered finish. Shows some tannic grip on the aftertaste, and should only get better. Drink now through 2026. 347 cases made.
