The original To Kalon Vineyard dates back to the late 1860’s and is fabled in the history of Napa Valley grape-growing. Named for the Greek translation of “the highest beauty,” today the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard consistently produces round, rich fruit. In 2013, the epic growing conditions surpassed those of 2012, offering grapes that were even more dense and concentrated, with optimum ripeness and flavor expression.
Harvested in the pre-dawn hours of September 30, the grapes were brought to the winery cold. The clusters were de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks for a 24-hour cold soak prior to starting fermentation. The fruit was fermented for two weeks, pressed and then aged in 85% new Darnajou and Taransaud French oak barrels. After aging for 22 months, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered prior to cellaring for an additional 15 months.
Aromas of blueberry and blackberry with a black olive undertone. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish. This is a little austere but I think it will develop nicely with bottle age. Try in 2019.
