The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.'
As in the previous years, 2014 was a very good year for the 'O.G.' block of Beckstoffer To Kalon. This dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon reveals gorgeous notes of blackberry liqueur, complex floral undertones all matched with an inky deep purple color. Sweet tannins integrate with a plush, persistent and prodigious palate making this a complex wine which expertly showcases Napa Valley terroir. As with prior vintages of this wine, the structure and power of the clone 337 from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard lends itself well to an extended decant or several years of bottle age to really spread its wings. This wine should hit its prime in 7 to 10 years and continue to age and become more complex for decades.

2015 Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The Grand Daddy' Cabernet Sauvignon

From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2015 due to exceptional farming, perfectly balanced cropping and significant hang time. Year after year, these older clone 4 vines offer our most upfront, instantly appealing and massive wine from this vineyard. Blackberry fruits, licorice, and truffle mingle to create a lavish multi-layered wine, offering an enormous mid-palate buttressed perfectly by the wine's natural acidity and gripping tannins. Offering a unique amount of ripeness and texture, this is an elegant wine wrapped up in a cloak of raw but refined power. While drinking great now, allow this wine to age and watch it reach its full potential.

2015 Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The Three Kings' Cabernet Sauvignon

From the back of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine throws off an amazingly deep ruby color tinged with an vibrant purple hue. Boasting off-the-charts richness and a stunningly majestic perfume of black, blue and red fruits, it is a successful expression of Cabernet Clone 7 from the world class vineyard. With its fruit forward profile, the wine opens up immediately with floral aromatics mixed with dark currants, spices and blue/black fruit. The mid palate is bold, loaded with rounded tannins that seem perfectly embedded within the core of this wine. Seamless and loaded with waves of decadent Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, this wine once again borders on stunning. While drinking superb now, give this beautiful wine a few years in the cellar to round out and you will be rewarded by additional nuances for years to come.
