2018 Realm Cellars Beckstoffer To Kalon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon | Oakville Napa Valley California 750ml


100% Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is beautiful, offering a more backward, reserved expression of this vineyard than usual, although no less impressive. Beautiful creme de cassis, graphite, white chocolate, and floral notes emerge from the glass, and it's deep, full-bodied, and concentrated, with ample tannins and mid-palate depth. Tight, backward, and closed, yet with incredible purity, hide bottles for 4-5 years and it should keep for 20-30 years. It's incredibly well done, and I'd be thrilled to have bottles in the cellar. | 98+ points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

It was also the ancient Greeks who first said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If that is true, then To Kalon Vineyard is aptly named, considered by countless people over many decades as the preeminent vineyard of Napa Valley. We've been fortunate to work with grapes from Beckstoffer To Kalon since we began making wine in 2002. Comprised of a portion of the historical To Kalon vineyard planted in 1868, the 89-acre parcel was acquired by Andy Beckstoffer in 1993 and replanted to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Sitting on the west side of the Napa Valley's Oakville appellation, Beckstoffer To Kalon grapes are only made available to a small number of boutique wine producers, who, quite simply, fashion them into some of the highest quality wines Napa alley has to offer. "The wines from To Kalon are so dense, so opulent," says Winemaker Benoit Touquette. "When you look at it, it's hard to put a finger on what makes this vineyard so special. But in the wine, its beauty is unmistakable." Realm's Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from several blocks planted to Clones 4 and 337. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. |Realm Cellars
