($75; 15.8% alcohol) Superripe aromas of roasted berries, mocha and dark chocolate, plus a hint of eucalyptus. Huge, dense and broad; a massive wine with almost port-like confectionery ripeness. A bit monolithic today and in need of a few years of bottle aging. Finishes very long, with suave, fine tannins and a sweet note of chocolate.

More mature and evolved (or maybe it just has more to it), the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard tastes like a great vintage of Pontet-Canet or Mouton Rothschild. This profound Napa Cabernet Sauvignon reveals gorgeous notes of creme de cassis, a celestial floral and espresso character, an inky/purple color, a dense full-bodied mouthfeel and hints of wood smoke and a volcanic/burning ember note. Quite intense with a prodigious mouthfeel and a nearly 60-second finish, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another quarter of a century. Bravo! Both of these wines performed even better than they did when I tasted them from bottle eight years ago.

Very rich and also firmly tannic, with complex aromas of dried tobacco, expresso bean, cedar, currant and dark berry. Full-bodied and muscle-bound, long on the finish, with a dry, savory aftertaste. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2018. 295 cases made.
