Notes from the Winemaker:
We are proud to present our portfolio of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon wines from two of Napa Valley's most prestigious and historic vineyard estates—the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville and the Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford. With both outstanding locations, we combine meticulous vineyard management with "no holds barred" winemaking practices to produce elegant wines of exceptional depth, richness, and character that we feel are the highest and most authentic expression of these noble vineyards.


Ratings & Reviews


97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS from Clone 337 planted in the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard reveals a similar blue/purple color offers a big, sweet kiss of burning embers, charcoal, white chocolate, subtle toast, and oodles of creme de cassis and incense. This expressive, full-bodied, powerful wine is seamlessly constructed, shows little evidence of the 100% new oak aging, and like most of its peers, has a 45-second finish. It is slightly more exotic aromatically, but from a textural and concentration perspective, it is similar to its peers." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (22nd Dec 2010)

97 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Delightfully elegant and refined, showing richness, opulence and depth of flavor with a measure of loamy earth, mineral and light cedar. Full-bodied and persistent, ending with chewy, extracted fruit and a rustic edge, appropriate for such a young wine. Drink now through 2023. 185 cases made." - JL (Oct 31, 2011)
