Janzen Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2018

Only 30 units available online.
Product description

Iconic, and synonymous with excellence, the celebrated Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard has a long history of producing amazingly robust, yet balanced and elegant wines. 2018 was among the most balanced vintages over the last 10- 15 years. The result is a wine that offers great opulence, while maintaining the elegance and complexity expected from this world class vineyard. Featuring a beautiful bouquet of roses, red fruit and hints of spice, this vintage elegantly expands across the palate with a richness that bodes well for ageing this wine.

98 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is expressive and ready to go, offering a beautiful bouquet of cassis, blueberries, flowery incense, tobacco leaf, sandalwood, and violet-like nuances. Beautifully balanced and full-bodied, with that classic To Kalon sexiness as well as purity on the palate, this is another head-turning wine in this lineup that can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Entirely varietal and given 22 months in 100% new French oak, this wine exudes dark mocha, black currant and cassis flavours, coming together in a seamless, opulent style. Sweet oak and notes of clove, cinnamon and black pepper dot a structured, complex and full-bodied wine of considerable length.

92 Points - James Suckling    Cherry pie and plums with lots of vanilla and walnuts. Spicy wood. It’s full-bodied with round tannins and a juicy finish. A bigger style.
