A quintessential To Kolan with its full-bodied, plush, sexy style, it has terrific purity, remarkable elegance, and no hard edges. It's one of those powerful wines that just glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness. This cuvée is all Cabernet, from clones 6 and 337, harvested all before the fires, and aged 20 months in new barrels. It’s in the top 2-3 wines of the vintage. collapse

Lots of blue fruit here with raspberries and blackcurrants. Aromatic. Full-bodied, tight and focused with refined tannins that melt into the wine. Finely textured and racy at the finish. Better after 2022.

It was harvested on Friday October 6th, two days before the start of the Atlas Peak fire. Yields at To Kalon are strictly managed by the team at TOR to one cluster per shoot. The wine was matured in 100% Darnajou small French oak barrels for twenty months and bottled without fining or filtration. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer To Kalon simply sings of violets, red roses and licorice over a beautiful core of warm cassis, blueberry pie and plum preserves plus nuances of Morello cherries, menthol, chocolate box and cedar. Medium to full bodied, the palate is laden with juicy black fruits and compelling tension, framed by super-firm yet wonderfully ripe, velvety tannins and finishing long and perfumed. This wine is a true triumph in a challenging vintage - bravo! 393 cases were made.- LPB collapse

Inky blue and purplish fruit, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice all run through this racy, wonderfully nuanced Cabernet. The 2017 is soft, fruity and relatively easygoing for this site, but it all works beautifully. -- Antonio Galloni collapse
