The Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard sits on the valley floor in the heart of Oakville. Among the most sought after vineyard sites in all of Napa, the To Kalon name is synonymous with excellence. Our 2014 offering features a blackcurrant fruit core with notes of both red and blue fruits as well as hints of earth, incense and espresso. The opulent mouthfeel fills the palate with juicy and round density, while fine tannins allow the finish to linger in the most pleasant of ways.

Incredibly spicy with lots of ripe fruit, but this isn't overdone. Full and intense with a clove and berry aftertaste. Chewy yet polished tannins. A beauty. 94, outstanding!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October, 2017
The 2014 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon sports a very deep garnet-purple color and exotic nose of Indian spices, smoked meats and sandalwood over a core of crème de cassis, baked black berries and blueberry pie with wafts of dried roses and oolong tea. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and seductive, it has beautifully plush tannins and just enough freshness to support the generous fruit, finishing very long and very sexy.
