2016 Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The O.G.' Cabernet Sauvignon
From our original block of Beckstoffer To Kalon grapes, a wine renown for its purity, this dense and ethereal Napa Cabernet Sauvignon reveals gorgeous notes of ripe black cherry, complex floral and earthy undertones all matched with an inky deep purple color. Sweet tannins integrate with a concentrated palate making this a complex wine which expertly showcases Napa Valley terroir. As with the 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.


2016 Beckstoffer To Kalon 'The Grand Daddy' Cabernet Sauvignon
From the very front of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this block produced exceptional wines in 2016 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 mocha 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.


2016 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 red rose aromatics mixed with spices and blue/black fruit. The mid palate is full bodied and 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’ll be rewarded by additional nuances for years to come.


2016 Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard 'La Verdad' Cabernet Sauvignon
From our original block on the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard, the 2016 'La Verdad' is ultra low production wine. Showing a strikingly dark hue, the nose emits a show stopping rush of blueberry and black fruits. The first taste is an opulent and rich attack on the senses, bursting with concentrated blue and black fruits, while the underlying minerality and structure result in a muscular but well-balanced Cabernet. A full-bodied mid-palate reveals finely integrated tannins that lift the overall back bone of the wine and ends with an opulent finish.


2016 Beckstoffer Las Piedras 'La BAM' Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Tucked below the foot of Spring Mountain in the St. Helena AVA lies the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard - a site renowned for its naturally low yields and well draining soil. These slightly younger vines are closer to Sulphur Springs and sit on slightly more gravelly soil. Like a smack in the face, 'La BAM', boasts a rich bold palate of crushed rock, wet gravel, red and blackberry fruits. With a brooding yet full bodied profile, the wine is loaded with rounded sweet barrel tannins that seem to perfectly embed within the core of this wine.

2016 Weitz Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
From high up on the eastern Oakville Bench and renown for its red volcanic soil, this translucent purple wine opens with signature scents of red and black berry fruits, cassis and crushed petals. Notably plush tannins and natural acidity give this wine both concentration and a multi-dimensional quality. Considerable depth and fruit will continue to develop as the structure starts to integrate with bottle age and bring tremendous purity and allure. Decanting a few hours will benefit this wine for early drinking; cellar for 5-10 years to enjoy this wine in its prime.
