The To Kalon vineyard was one of the top sites in 2016, and the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard knocks it out of the park. Sporting a vibrant purple color and straight-up off the charts notes of black raspberries, cassis, flowery spice, and incense, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and power, a multi-dimensional texture, and a huge finish, all while staying light and elegant on the palate. As sexy and opulent as it gets, drink this magical elixir any time over the coming 15-20 years. This cuvée spent 22 months in 80% new French oak. Hats off to winemaker Philippe Melka for another tour de force in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon!

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is a total stunner. A rich, sumptuous wine, the 2016 possesses dazzling textural richness and intensity. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, licorice and spices soar out of the glass. Silky tannins envelop the palate as this dazzling, spectacularly vivid Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its pedigree. The 2016 is a magical wine. Wow!

Aged 22 months in 80% new French oak, the very deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Lithology Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon has an amazingly profound nose of Indian spices, incense, crushed rocks and potpourri over a core of crème de cassis, preserved plums and blueberry pie with wafts of cedar chest and chocolate box. The palate is full-bodied and oh-so-decadent in the mouth with beautifully ripe, plush tannins and background freshness pushing the layered fruit to the forefront, finishing very long and very seductive. 150 cases produced.
