Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard comes across as dark, plush and inviting, but with greater inner focus and minerality than some of the other wines here. Graphite, smoke, tar and licorice are some of the notes that wrap around the intense, juicy finish. I especially admire the way the RBS grows in the glass as it turns more explosive over time, yet never loses its more refined shades of expression. The RBS is 100% clone 337 from the B1 and B2 blocks. According to winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, it is the addition of fruit from B2 (new this year) that gives the 2009 much of its personality. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Wine SpectatorDeeply extracted, with dense, ripe tannins that are mouthcoating. Intense dried dark berry, currant, melted chocolate, roasted herb and sage give this an expansive range of flavors, ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2014 through 2032. 410 cases made.
