Winemaker Notes

The power of this heritage vineyard lies in its distinct nose with classic To Kalon aromas of clay loam, wet earth and mint. Additional elevated aromatics feature blueberry jam, rhubarb compote, cassis and sweet tobacco. On the palate, the wine is both precise and dense, with soy, menthol, raspberry cordial and black raspberry jam notes. A powerful wine from start to finish, with powdery, chalky tannins and an impressively long finish.

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon. 12% Cabernet Franc

James Suckling
This is very tight and powerful with a cylinder of gorgeous fruit with blackberry, blueberry, terracotta, and currants. Full body, firm and silky tannins. Incredible finish. Love the finish. Try in 2022.
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc aged 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is very deep purple-black in color and has a nose of seductive crème de cassis, baked black cherries, dried mulberries and blueberry compote with touches of tapenade, Indian spices, sandalwood and potpourri plus a hint of tea. The palate is full, rich, velvety and spicy with layers of savory and spice flavors, finishing long and complex.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is an elegant wine from this vineyard, which normally produces powerful, exotic wines. Pure crème de cassis, spring flowers, caramelized cherries, and white flower notes all flow to a full-bodied effort that has silky tannins, a polished texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s another perfectly balanced wine from Tony Biagi that can be drunk any time over the coming 15-20 years.

Amici, California
Amici Winery Video
In the 1990's, a group of friends with a passion for good wine and fun times together crushed a few tons of grapes in the Napa Valley for their personal cellars. The resulting wine was so well-received that they started producing wine the very next year to share with the public. They chose to name the wine, appropriately, Amici ("friends" in Italian).

Amici's owners — John Harris, Bob and Celia Shepard, and Bart Woytowicz—are all great friends with a passion for making and enjoying great wine. At Amici the focus is on quality, not quantity. Because they insist on keeping the production small, they can carefully control the process of creating each wine, crafting what they like to consider a small work of art in each bottle.

What started as a few friends crushing some grapes for fun is now an award-winning premium wine known around the country, but one thing will never change: Amici is a wine created by friends, for friends.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
