2016 Macauley Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon $200.00
At Macauley we are spoiled by the exclusive small-lot Cabernet vineyards from which we can draw. Star, Stagecoach, Oakville 360, Oakville Ranch and Beckstoffer Georges III are but a handful of the designates. Each is a unique and notable property, but the To Kalon Vineyard reigns supreme. Year in and year out, this is a fan favorite and we are particularly proud of this phenomenal 2016 vintage. It is a dark, savory wine full of power and harmony, with a dense bouquet bursting with dark cherry and plum. Aromas of ripe black currant, blackberry and cherry reduction are accented with 100% new French Oak notes of vanillin, caramelized sugar and toffee. This is a velvety red that washes over every corner of the mouth. It’s tempting to uncork this wine today but it will be very exciting to see where it goes 10 or 15 years from now.
