If the Dr. Crane Vineyard is La Mission Haut-Brion, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is a classic first-growth and, for Napa, a Pauillac-like offering. It has a dense purple color and is as youthful as the Dr. Crane, but exhibiting less minerality, with more classic crème de cassis, wild mountain berry fruit, and hints of tobacco and spring flowers as well as licorice. As often is the case, every nook and cranny of the palate seems to be filled with wondrous flavors of red and black fruits and spices in a silky, full-bodied, opulent style. This is a beauty, still young, with as much upside as the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane. Nevertheless, this is a slightly bigger wine, even though the alcohol level is about the same as the Dr. Crane (15.3%). This beauty is approachable, but another five years will reward with even greater pleasure, and 20-25 years of cellaring is well within its potential. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
