2012 Cliff Lede "Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1327226 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another brilliant offering from one of the true first-growth sites in Napa Valley is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard. Graphite, crème de cassis and spice box characteristics jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored Cabernet Sauvignon. Thick but fresh with gorgeously ripe fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long finish, this is a terrific example of Cabernet Sauvignon. It will drink well young and over the next 15+ years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon is one of the most closed wines in this range, but at the same time, the pedigree of the site is evident in the balance of fruit, acidity and tannin. There is a lot to look forward to, but readers will have to be patient. Typical To-Kalon dark blue and purplish fruit, licorice, smoke and cassis saturate the palate on the inky, powerful finish. Drink through 2032. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Smoothly textured around layers of dark, ripe fruit, this wine from hallowed Napa Valley ground features richer undertones of cinnamon and clove. Smoky oak and chocolate flesh out the midpalate and finish, providing a spark of plushness and decadence as it fades out. (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers a pebbly foundation, with rich, chunky wild blackberry and anise flavors. Ends with stemmy tannins. Drink now through 2029. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 28 Jul, 2015 – A rich and ripe style to this wine with dried fruits, figs and vanilla. Full body, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A fun juxtaposition of ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Inner quote mark (7/2015)
