2019 Cliff Lede Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District
Situated on the western Oakville bench, the celebrated Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard has gravelly loam soils with high mineral content derived from sedimentary deposits of the volcanic Mayacamas Mountains and the alluvial fan of the Napa River. The vineyard has low organic matter content and thorough drainage, which devigorates the vines and produces small berries that are ideal for wines with intense concentration. The site is warm and sunny throughout the day, but cooled by late afternoon breezes, producing ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with lovely acidity. The blocks that make up our blend represent a diverse array of the Beckstoffer To Kalon terroir and clonal selection, creating a unique and extraordinary wine from this critically praised site.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with a profound nose of crème de cassis, baked plums and blackberry preserves, leading to hints of cinnamon toast, menthol and cedar chest plus a touch of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, fine-grained and refreshing, the palate is elegantly styled with amazing intensity and a fantastically long, earthy finish."
