Winemaker Julien Fayard with Philippe Melka consulting, taps the legendary Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard for a single vineyard selection at Purlieu. The result is Cabernet with deep inky color, intensely black aromatics, and grounded minerality.| Falling BrightIn Greek, To Kalon means "most beautiful". Within the Napa Valley's Oakville AVA, this vineyard is widely considered a "Grand Cru" of California. We get our fruit from Andy Beckstoffer, a legendary grower in the Napa Valley who owns a large portion of this prestigious vineyard...Each individual vine's needs are uniquely tended to in To Kalon. The soil is mostly clay loam, which drains well and stresses the vines, thereby producing smaller and more concentrated grape clusters. | Purlieu Wines Visit here for notes on Winemaker Julien Fayard whose experience includes estates such as Lafite-Rothschild, Quintessa, and Atelier [Philippe] Melka and clients such as Lail Vineyards, Gemstone, and Dalla Valle.
