Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

SKU 30045


The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, densely saturated garnet in the glass, has even in its appearance, depth balanced by liveliness. Strikingly focused aromatics of crushed graphite, cedar, sage, and cigar box precede flavors of mountain black cherry, wild blackberry and currant wafting in high wattage power from the glass. The mouthfeel's full weight and roundness is framed by waves of silky yet pronounced tannins, which crescendo into a long, elegant finish that exhilarates the palate. Consider complementing the complexity and profound depth of this wine with the simplicity of a pan roasted veal chop, or well-seasoned dry aged beef.

Wine AdvocateThe first-growth 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard flirts again with a potential perfect score when it is finally in bottle. Opaque purple in color, with notes of charcoal, graphite, incense, blueberry and blackberry fruit, and a touch of new oak followed by a full-bodied, massively concentrated mouthfeel. This is an amazing wine for a 2014, and the good news is that there are 800 cases of it, compared to only 638 in 2013. It should drink well for 20 or more years.

Wine SpectatorPure and rich, with an intense core of blackberry, boysenberry, black licorice, crushed rock and seductive spicy, mocha-laced oak. This zooms, glides, twists and turns, offering a fascinating array of flavors and textures. Best from 2020 through 2038. 840 cases made.
