Alejandro Bulgheroni Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|California, Napa Valley, St Helena
Pure perfection, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is a nuclear fruit bomb of a wine, offering massive richness and depth while being as graceful as a ballerina, with no sensation of weight or heaviness. Classic To Kalon crème de cassis, black raspberries, flowery incense, spice, and tobacco notes all define the bouquet, and it's full-bodied, with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It has another 2-3 decades of prime drinking ahead of it. This cuvée is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from four blocks in To Kalon, aged 20 months in 82% new French oak.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is laced with the essence of crème de cassis, blackberry jam, chocolate, grilled herbs and licorice. This powerful, virile Cabernet needs a few years to soften, but it has a ton to offer. The natural breadth and resonance of To Kalon are very much on display
