Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 97+
A vineyard that rarely holds things close to its vest, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard just about jumps from the glass with its brilliant perfume of red, blue, and black fruits as well as flowery incense, Asian spices, tapenade, and iron-like aromas and flavors. One of the more structured, tannic wines in the lineup, it's medium to full-bodied, has a great mid-palate, and serious length on the finish. As with most 2019s, there's plenty of early appeal, yet smart money will give these 3-5 years. Drink 2025-2045.

Blueberry, dark chocolate, sandalwood and cedar. Crushed stone, too. Full-bodied with depth of fruit and richness. The tannins are chewy and focused. A leaner yet rich palate that gives a special interpretation of To Kalon. Drink after 2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
The 2019 To Kalon Cabernet is truly unlike any other To Kalon we have made in 20 years. This years wine includes the largest percentage of Cabernet Franc that we have ever had in a To Kalon and wow what that did! This years version has all of the depth and richness that you expect from a To Kalon Cabernet but with much more refined tannins and a slight rosewater, tobacco edge that is not normally there. In addition the lift and freshness that the addition of the Franc added makes this perhaps the most food friendly To Kalon we have ever made. As great as past To Kalons have been it is very hard to single this out as the best but in a few years I would not be surprised to see it there.
