96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate The ever-humorous and clever Jean Hoefliger says about the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon, "It has the complexity and depth of Sigmund Freud and the integrity of Abraham Lincoln." Perhaps my tasting notes can?t say it much better than that. It?s a prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of charcoal embers integrated with blueberry, blackberry and cassis, some lead pencil shavings, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and a massive, full-bodied mouthfeel with incredible purity, structure and intensity. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following 30+. Bigger than life Jean Hoefliger is the winemaking guru behind these wines. He has partnered with Rob McKay, and they obviously have access to some incredibly great vineyards in Napa in order to produce such world-class wines. Three of the five wines I tasted came from 100% Beckstoffer-owned vineyards, and that generally means amazing materials. (RP) (10/2015) 92 points James Suckling A rich and opulent red with blueberry, black currant and licorice aromas that follow through to a full body, firm and chewy tannins and a medium finish. Full-throttle but shows tension and zest. (1/2016)
