2017 MACAULEY Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville $200.00
Always one of our most anticipated releases, this vintage of the To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was born of select yields of the highest-quality fruit, grown in the most exclusive vineyard blocks of Oakville. It greets you with a bouquet of currant, clove and dried rose, along with very typical hints of tar and Oakville black olive. With good tannic structure and a carefully finessed acidity, this vintage of our To Kalon delivers the color, weight, and balance you would expect from this famed vineyard. Aged in 100% Taransaud and Darnajou French Oak barriques, the palate leads off with dried herbs and dried cherries, followed by a heavenly rush of cassis and a flood of raspberry tart. Decanting for a few hours will only sharpen these hard-earned aromas. Unfiltered and unfined, as always, only 225 cases were made.
