A compelling, potentially legendary effort, there are 896 cases of the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard To-Kalon. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a classic Cabernet nose of tobacco smoke, creme de cassis, licorice, and lead pencil. It boasts massive body, great purity, loads of intensity as well as concentration, and a nectar-like unctuosity on the mid-palate and finish. This tannic, unevolved baby tastes like a California version of a Pauillac first-growth. It’s that special! Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.

Young, closed, dense, but fine. Flavors suggest rum-soaked raisins, cassis, sweet oak and gingerbread. Long, rich, fat, extracted, borders on super-maturity but not quite, maintaining balance and even elegance. Finishes... Young, closed, dense, but fine. Flavors suggest rum-soaked raisins, cassis, sweet oak and gingerbread. Long, rich, fat, extracted, borders on super-maturity but not quite, maintaining balance and even elegance. Finishes long and fruity.
