2021 Janzen 'Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

$299.95

From the iconic Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, this wine offers seductive aromas of crushed berries, violets, and fresh leather. A rich tapestry of black and red fruit, tobacco, and coffee greets the palate. With a luxurious texture and elegant finish, it promises to age gracefully for 15-20 years.

Claus Janzen doesn't shy away from taking the road less traveled. He originally made his mark on the local wine scene with the wholly unique "Bacio Divino," arguably Napa's most successful Tuscan-inspired red. When he moved that project into the world of Cabernet, he did so with the philosophy that it would be the vineyards rather than the blend that would drive the program's success. So, like many other notable Cabernet producers, Claus turned to vine guru Andy Beckstoffer for fruit, and the rest as they say, is history. With the help of lauded winemaker Kirk Venge, he has created a range of Napa Cabernets with completely unique personalities, and the critics have taken note. He's even dialed in a sensational Pinot Noir from a serious vineyard down south. Some of our favorite wines year in and year out, you'd be wise to pay attention to this lauded producer.
