Cliff Lede Vineyards is excited to announce the release of the extraordinary 2016 Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon.
The well drained, gravelly loam soils of western Oakville that are the source for our To Kalon Vineyard give this Cabernet’s signature aromas of violets, gravel, and dark cassis. The 2016 vintage is brimming with gobs of warm currants, dark chocolate cake, lavender, and an earthy minerality, that arise and coalesce in the glass. Flavors of clove and cinnamon-spiced blackberry preserves spring forth along the sultry palate. The vintage’s fresh acidity carries the unctuous flavors along enthusiastically, and the ultrafine, sensuous tannin are impossible to resist.
