TOR Kenward Family Wines Oakville Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Napa Valley, California

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

This is a gorgeous Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley, from the great 2012 vintage. Rich, extracted, generous and fruit forward.

Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and a long finish.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, chocolates, licorice, sweet tobacco, cola, coffee, mocha and peppercorn.

Drinking very nicely right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Shows a really nice nose, that I kept on smelling for a while. Tasty and delicious. Showing great complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This 9 year old Magnum is delicious now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Robert Parker 96 points.
