Another blockbuster offering from the Three Kings section of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine throws off an amazingly deep garnet color tinged with an electric purple hue. Revealing superb balance and concentration, it is a successful expression of both the richness and power of clone 7 from the world class vineyard. With its fruit forward profile, the wine opens up immediately with sugar plums and floral aromatics mixed with incense and notes of graphite. The palate is epic, loaded with rounded tannins and balanced acidity - the trademark signature of this wine. Seamless and loaded with waves of decadent Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, this wine borders on stunning. While drinking superb now, give this beautiful wine a few years in the cellar to round out and you'll be rewarded by additional nuances for years to come.
Leading off the four releases from the To Kalon Vineyard, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings boasts a saturated purple color as well as lots of black, chocolaty fruits supported by more gravelly earth and tobacco. A dark, concentrated, structured To Kalon that builds beautifully with time in the glass, I'd happily drink a bottle today, although it will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring.
