International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($125; 15.1% alcohol; the first vintage for this wine) Explosive aromas of currant, leather, meat, iron and mocha. Fatter and broader than the RBS, with flavors of currant, game and truffle nicely firmed by ripe acids. As sweet and lush as this is, it's also lively and firm, with a lower pH than the RBS (3.75, vs. 3.88). From Clone 6, which features loose cylindrical clusters; winemaker Brown describes it as "a powerhouse."

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 207

The closest to full maturity and farthest along in its evolution appears to be the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To- Kalon Vineyard. Notes of pen ink, creosote, tar, black currants and Christmas fruitcake jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored effort, which is showing less color saturation than its three siblings. Full-bodied and ripe with soft tannins, good freshness and liveliness, there is no reason to defer your gratification. It is an intense, mouthfilling, terrific, young Cabernet Sauvignon that should continue to drink well for 10-15 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Dark and intense, with concentrated currant, black cherry, mocha and espresso bean flavors that firm up, supported by tight, chewy tannins and a rich aftertaste. Closes down on the finish, with cedary lead pencil and oak flavors. 175 cases made.

After decanting an hour showed good tannic structure and well laid out fruit with a long finish.
