Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2009
WA97+: Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is sporting quite a lot of cedar to begin, giving way to a crazy-intense perfume of crème de cassis, blueberry pie and Black Forest cake plus hints of dried mint, mocha, sandalwood and powdered cinnamon. This is a concentrated, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal palate with the layers of black fruits supported by rock-solid, firm tannins, finishing long with a lot of grip and texture.
VM97: The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard saturates every corner of the palate with layers after layers of rich dark fruit, mocha, spices and licorice. This is a stunning To Kalon endowed with tons of site-specific character and nuance.
