Bright ruby-red. Aromas of bitter cherry, dark chocolate, smoke, licorice and cinnamon. Supple, sweet and energetic, offering a distinctly creamy quality but also very good mid-palate definition. A very pretty cabernet with a firmly tannic, long finish. This fruit was picked before the October rains, noted Kenward.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Old B wraps around the palate with layers of dark red fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and spices. This is a gorgeous and rather open, perfumed wine from To Kalon that convinces for its overall balance and finesse. Sweet, floral notes reappear on the finish.
