The true essence of Napa Valley Cabernet, this elegant, classically styled wine offers an exceptional experience that pairs muscular power with magnificent finesse. Wildly aromatic, the wine delivers copious amounts of creme de cassis, red currant and smoky aromas complimented by flavors of blackberry and plum compote with notes of crushed rock minerality. Perfectly balanced with silky smooth texture, the wine is eminently approachable upon release, yet possesses a rich, well-woven tannin structure that will carry through the years to come. Aged 20 months in rare Darnajou French oak barrels.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS is lighter than usual, but still very attractive, forward and endearing ... one of the positives in 2011. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple and the wine is clean, with no herbaceous or mean green characteristics. This elegant, medium-bodied 2011 is ideal for drinking over the next 10-12 years.

Wine SpectatorDense and powerful, with potent fresh earth and rocky, gravel pit touches, overshadowing the dried dark berry, licorice and spice notes. Ends with depth and length even as the tannins apply the brakes. Drink now through 2023. 290 cases made.
