Often our To Kalons show a lot more fruit or “flesh” at this stage, but this one is darker and deeper than most we have made from our eight blocks in To Kalon. Maybe this is because we thin each vine to one cluster per shoot, and most probably it is one that will be evolving for a very long time. Matured in 100% Darnajou small French oak barrels for twenty months and bottled without fining or filtration.

The 2019 To Kalon Cabernet is truly unlike any other To Kalon we have made in 20 years. This years wine includes the largest percentage of Cabernet Franc that we have ever had in a To Kalon and wow what that did! This years version has all of the depth and richness that you expect from a To Kalon Cabernet but with much more refined tannins and a slight rosewater, tobacco edge that is not normally there. In addition the lift and freshness that the addition of the Franc added makes this perhaps the most food friendly To Kalon we have ever made. As great as past To Kalons have been it is very hard to single this out as the best but in a few years I would not be surprised to see it there.

  1. WA

    A barrel sample, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon has a deep garnet-purple color and bursts with black cherry preserves, blackcurrant jelly and boysenberries scents plus suggestions of pencil shavings, dusty soil, cinnamon stick and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate has loads of lively black fruit and earthy flavors with a firm, grainy texture and long savory finish.

    The Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon from Tor is once again simply marvelous. It instantly bursts open with stunning aromatics of blackberries, black cherries and hints of blueberries, which are woven together with tobacco, pencil shavings, sweet spices and herbs all bursting from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and beautifully structured with gorgeous round, polished tannins. This possesses incredible concentration and focus as well as remarkable overall balance. It goes on to impress with its ripe core of delicious dark fruits and savory flavors. Everything comes together seamlessly on the long expansive finish as it continues to linger effortlessly. This is a flat-out stunning wine that is extremely expressive and already open for business, however Tor’s wines are known to age beautifully and this will likely become even more impressive as it evolves over time.

  3. JD

    A vineyard that rarely holds things close to its vest, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard just about jumps from the glass with its brilliant perfume of red, blue, and black fruits as well as flowery incense, Asian spices, tapenade, and iron-like aromas and flavors. One of the more structured, tannic wines in the lineup, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a great mid-palate, and serious length on the finish. As with most 2019s, there’s plenty of early appeal, yet smart money will give these 3-5 years.

  4. JS

    Blueberry, dark chocolate, sandalwood and cedar. Crushed stone, too. Full-bodied with depth of fruit and richness. The tannins are chewy and focused. A leaner yet rich palate that gives a special interpretation of To Kalon. Drink after 2024.
