World's End Good Times Bad Times immediately stacks up to the top tier of To-Kalon producers in its premiere. With the number of wines that emanate from this vineyard, World's End like to think of it as the Clos de Vougeot of the Napa Valley. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wine EnthusiastBrambly and spicy red and black fruit mark this mighty Cabernet, sourced from the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of Oakville. Despite its name it offers only Good Times, a well-composed, unabashedly hedonistic taste of juicy ripe Napa fruit and overtly lush tannins.
James SucklingA soft, pretty cabernet with currant, berry and lemon-peel character. Full body with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Fresh and clean.
The Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Good Times, Bad Times from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard reveals a glorious floral nose of creme de cassis and cedar, sweet vanillin, rich, creamy, medium to full-bodied flavors, and nice spicebox.
International Wine CellarBright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate, espresso, mocha and minerals, with notes of licorice pastille and violet emerging with air. Big, rich and mouthcoating but with serious acidity and menthol reserve keeping the wine's fruit under wraps today. This distinctly medicinal cabernet is clearly better than the 2009 version but will need time in bottle to resolve its slightly disjointed acidity and absorb its oak tannins.
