‘The Three Kings’ is one heavenly Cab from the back of the Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard. Fruit is the crowning glory here, with anentourage of floral aromatics and spices. The mid-palate shines with racy yet rounded tannins and yet more powerful fruit. Approach the throne slowly – this will reward the patient after a few years of exile in the cellar.

Another release from this great vineyard, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings comes from a single block and is all clone 7. This rocking wine is pure To Kalon with its huge, monster bouquet of crème de cassis, spiced plums, flowery incense, tobacco, and cedar pencil notes. It’s always a big, rich wine, yet it still shows balance, elegant, fine tannins, and a blockbuster styled finish.


Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The Three Kings opens with bold, expressive scents of fresh red and black plums, black raspberries, redcurrants and dried Mediterranean herbs with hints of pencil lead, damp soil and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of lively red and black berry flavors, supported by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with a peppery kick.



Mark Carter's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard The Three Kings is a huge, powerful wine. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, new leather, licorice and cloves saturate the palate in a dense, brooding Cabernet that will need time to come into its own.
