Wine Review: This ruby red colored Cabernet Sauvignon the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard opens with a fragrant strawberry and gentle red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty plum with notes of nicely integrated gentle oak and black cherry. I also detected hints of black pepper and red beet. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are well managed and linger for quite some time. This Cab is ready and food friendly. I would pair this very nice wine with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: To Kalon Cabernets are legendary. The 2012 Knights Bridge bottling from this vineyard expresses aromatic impressions of dark red fruits, toffee, leather and floral notes. A rich entry in the mouth with a long finish of vanilla, cassis and sweet oak extend the lingering character of the varietal. Many savory dishes would pair well with this abundant wine such as French cut pork chops rubbed with fresh herbs.
