Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard slides seductively out of the glass with the most gorgeous notions of Chinese five spice, plum preserves, crème de cassis and potpourri plus hints of oolong tea, spearmint and cedar chest. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and oh-so-decadent in the mouth, the generously spiced black fruit preserves, the firm, plush frame and the finish are simply epic. 469 cases were made.
This is a ripe and balanced To Kalon with a plum and chocolate character. Plenty of cedar and sandalwood, too. Full-bodied, layered and juicy. Gorgeous fruit. Dense. Not on the level of past vintages like 2014 and 2013 but very pretty.
