The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon ratchets up the intensity and offers heavenly notes of blackcurrants, cassis, leafy herbs, flowery incense, and spice. A quintessential To Kolan with its full-bodied, plush, sexy style, it has terrific purity, remarkable elegance, and no hard edges. It's one of those powerful wines that just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness. This cuvée is all Cabernet, from clones 6 and 337, harvested all before the fires, and aged 20 months in new barrels. It’s in the top 2-3 wines of the vintage.
