TOR Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffers To Kalon Vineyard

TOR Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffers To Kalon Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $150.00 per bottle

Description: Fabulous dark ruby-purple to the core with absolutely no lightening at the rim. With the first smell of this wine, it is immediately evident that seamlessness is its trademark. Each note of the aromatics, gracefully leads to the next. The first hint of cherry is followed by macerated blackberry, leading to an explosion of cloves, cassis and liqueur. On the palate this wine is (despite its extreme richness) extraordinarily precise and focused. The finish is long, never seeming to quit (of course, why would you want it to?)

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
