PAUL HOBBS CABERNET SAUVIGNON BECKSTOFFER TO KALON VINEYARD OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2012
Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (readers may remember the 2002 merited a 100-point score) has a beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit note, a hint of incense, charcoal, an opaque purple color, full-bodied opulence and again that first-growth quality, richness, complexity and intensity. I’m not sure this is as compelling as the 2002, but it’s not far away. This is a magnificent, multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years. eRobertParker.com # , #215 (Oct 2014) Drink 2014 - 2034
One of the standouts in this range, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is dense, powerful and explosive. A host of dark red cherries, plums, spices, new leather and licorice wrap around the palate. Layers of flavor build to the explosive, dramatic finish. This is the most overt and voluptuous of Paul Hobbs's 2012 Cabernets. Already super-delicious, this racy, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific example of the year. This is an undeniably sexy, voluptuous Cabernet from Paul Hobbs and his team. Drink 2020 - 2032. Oct 2015 Antonio Galloni
