Exquisitely aromatic, this gorgeous perfume-like wine is the pure essence of Cabernet. Upon entry, luxurious aromas of cassis, plums, and violets wrap the senses, giving way to alluring notes of sweet spice, crushed flowers and elegant wet gravel minerality. Velvety smooth and plush with exceptional balance, the vibrancy and finesse of this wine carry through to the generous finish.

Wine AdvocateFlirting with perfection, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS from clone 337 was aged in new Darnajou barrels (80%) and the rest in new Taransaud barrels. There were 410 cases produced, which is several hundred cases less than the production in 2012. An unbelievable red wine, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as abundant notes of charcoal, white chocolate, toast, new saddle leather, blueberries, blackberries, creme de cassis and licorice. As the wine sits in the glass, some chocolaty, smoky elements also emerge. This virtually perfect Cabernet Sauvignon has been flawlessly made and should age effortlessly for 25-30+ years.

Wine SpectatorCombines power with finesse, though at this point the torque wins out, pushing this into overdrive. Tiers of spice, flowers and dark and red berry, with notes of licorice, flow before the tannins clamp down, giving the wine a chewy aftertaste. Ends with a teasing lift. Best from 2016 through 2030. 410 cases made.
