Pure Clone 6 Cabernet from Beckstoffer To Kalon, wonderfully intense as ever with a balanced lushness that persists. Jeb Dunnuck agreed, “With full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, awesome tannin quality, and a more rounded, sexy profile, it will be more approachable than the RBS release yet should age just as well. It’s a beautiful wine.” Add this to your collection.
Schrader’s T6 comes from Beckstoffer’s To Kalon vineyard in Oakville, produced from clone 6 grown on the D2 block. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged in 100% new oak for 20 months. Very deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard sashays out of the glass with opulent notes of fruitcake, Chinese five spice and oolong tea over a core of blackcurrant cordial, chocolate box and Morello cherries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has well-played, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, giving a boost to all of the decadently spicy blackberry preserves flavors, finishing on a stewed tea note. 215 cases were made.
