Paul Hobbs 'Beckstoffer To Kalon' Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley 2010
98 Points James Suckling:
This is a cab from one of the Napa Valley’s most famous vineyards. I often find wines from here overdone, but not this one. It’s rich but reserved and beautiful, with lots of dark fruit, chocolate and spice character. Better in 2018.
97 Points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate:
A much darker and more virile wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard opens with beguiling aromatics that meld into a core of blue and black fruit, exotic spices, tar, smoke and violets. The 2010 boasts superb depth, power and richness in a weighty, brooding style that is the essence of To Kalon. A huge, intense finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2032.
