Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5 Liter Magnum) 2002
Inky purple-black in color, this brooding beauty offers an extraordinary nose of blueberry, cedar, licorice and spice. On the palate, black cherry and crème de cassis wrap themselves around a massive, graphite core. Structure and power are complemented by notes of underbrush and smoke which add complexity and intrigue. Opulent, well-integrated tannins balance this bold expression of To Kalon fruit.
