Robert Parker 96-100
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard’s nose of creme de cassis, licorice, forest floor and espresso bean was followed by a full-bodied, opulent, round, generously endowed wine with no hard edges or flaws, just endless depth. It’s going to be extra special, but it is too early to say whether it will achieve the perfection of its 2002 sibling. The finish lasts 45-50 seconds, and this cuvee has 20-25 years of life ahead of it.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2038
