Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
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.
