Realm Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Pure, rich and concentrated, offering a dense, hearty core of mocha-laced blackberry, currant and wild berry flavors. Cedary oak nuances are evident and the texture is tannic and gripping. The finish offers an exciting aftertaste. Drink now through 2023. 375 cases made.
The outstanding 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is softer and less substantial than the 2010, but it is loaded with blue and black fruits, white chocolate, espresso roast and lead pencil shaving-like notes. The tannins are soft and unobtrusive in this fleshy, succulent, sensual red. This 2011 should drink beautifully over the next decade and initially, many readers may prefer it to the bigger, more authoritative 2010.
