    Beckstoffer, To-Kalon Vineyard
    lscl
    Bottle (1)


    "A compelling, potentially legendary effort, there are 896 cases of the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard To-Kalon. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a classic Cabernet nose of tobacco smoke, creme de cassis, licorice, and lead pencil. It boasts massive body, great purity, loads of intensity as well as concentration, and a nectar-like unctuosity on the mid-palate and finish. This tannic, unevolved baby tastes like a California version of a Pauillac first-growth. It’s that special!" (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #150, Dec. 2003)

    "From the undeniable first-growth quality site comes the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard. When the fruit from this vineyard is handled properly, the resulting wine often flirts with perfection. Hobbs’ 2001 boasts a dense blue/purple color along with an incredibly pure nose of spice box, cedarwood, creme de cassis, blueberry pie and subtle smoke as well as graphite notes that could easily pass for a first- or second-growth Pauillac. Broad, expansive, full-bodied flavors reveal stunning purity, amazing depth and richness, and a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. Still youthful, but oh, so impressive, it is hard to resist now, but it should be even better in 5-8 years, and keep for 30-40+ years." (97 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #195, June 2011)
