One of the most sought-after vineyards in the Napa Valley, Beckstoffer To Kalon is tantamount with excellence. The incomparable fruit quality of this 2016 vintage is a result of low yield and an exceptional growing season. The fine grain tannins that this legendary site boasts are well balanced. The red fruit feel envelops your palate from start to finish with a unique finesse. Look forward to enjoying this wine over the next two to three decades.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2017
The very deep purple-black colored 2016 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a little closed at this nascent juncture, offering glimpses of warm blackberry and spice cake notions with hints of incense, garrigue and hoisin. Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it has a lovely velvety texture and is packed with expressive fruit just waiting to unfurl, finishing long and multilayered.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is another brilliant 2016 that delivers the good. Its deep purple color is followed by a sexy, flamboyant, cassis and mulled plum-scented wine that has full-bodied opulence and power, loads of cedary incense, licorice, and sweet tobacco characteristics, and a blockbuster, lengthy finish. This is Napa at its most sexy and flamboyant, yet it has class, balance, and remarkable purity. Drink it any time over the coming 15 years or more.
