2014 Janzen "Beckstoffer To Kalon" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1330692 97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon sports a very deep garnet-purple color and exotic nose of Indian spices, smoked meats and sandalwood over a core of crème de cassis, baked black berries and blueberry pie with wafts of dried roses and oolong tea. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and seductive, it has beautifully plush tannins and just enough freshness to support the generous fruit, finishing very long and very sexy. 210 cases were made. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Outer quote mark The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is another uber ripe, incredibly sexy wine from this estate. Based off 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, its saturated purple/plum color is followed by a smorgasbord of ripe plum, blackcurrants, incense, roasted herbs and chocolate. Slightly more lifted than the Missouri Hopper, with serious richness and opulence, it's certainly not for those craving old-world aromas or favors, yet is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Incredibly spicy with lots of ripe fruit, but this isn't overdone. Full and intense with a clove and berry aftertaste. Chewy yet polished tannins. A beauty. Drink in 2020. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

K&L Notes

To Kalon is famous for being one of the core vineyards in the legendary BV George de la Tours, made by Andre Tchelistcheff in the 1930s, and continues to be a rare treasure of Napa valley with perhaps the highest pricetag for grapes in the country. Located on idyllic Western bench of Oakville, a section of To Kalon (“beautiful place” in Greek) was purchased by visionary grapegrower Andy Beckstoffer two decades ago and replanted to bring the vineyard into its full glory. Wines from Beckstofffer’s meticulously farmed blocks are consistently among the greatest wines from Napa Valley. Janzen partnered with Beckstoffer immediately became one of the few producers able to source fruit from this coveted vineyard.
