Paul Hobbs Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Sourced from favored rows within the acclaimed C2 block of Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, this elegant wine exudes class and refinement with aromas of black currant, blackberry, boysenberry, red cherry, forest floor, cedar, tobacco, Oolong tea, vanilla and pie crust. The mouthfeel is broad and complex with mature, fine tannins and vibrant acidity providing a frame for the cascading red and black fruits that persist through the very long finish. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth.

Wine AdvocatePaul Hobbs has exploited the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard as well as anybody (with the possible exception of the Schraders), and his 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is more narrowly framed than usual, but it remains a powerful, impressive 2011. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by copious aromas of cassis, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, earth and spice. With the finest texture and sweetness of all the 2011 Hobbs cuvees, it is expansive, rich and surprisingly strong as well as long. Enjoy this beauty over the next 10-15 years.
