New Cabernet release from Tor, one of our favorite Napa Valley Cabernet producers! Rare release from the legendary Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. Limited.

100 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The Tor 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon BeckstofferTo Kalon Vineyard is outrageously beautiful. Dark and dense to the core, the 2019 is an explosive wine endowed with remarkable depth. Creme de cassis, lavender, graphite and inky blue fruit saturate the palate as this sumptuous, dazzling Cabernet captivates all the senses. The 2019 is a wine of tremendous energy and class. This is the first vintage in which the team felt the Pure Magic lots worked best in the To Kalon wine. Tasting this barrel sample, its hard to argue with that choice. The 2019 is seriously off the charts."

97 Points Robert Parker: "For the first time, Tor's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon includes a fair whack of Cabernet Franc (14%), which winemaker Jeff Ames co-fermented with a portion of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Perhaps that is the source of the wine's delicate herbal shadings, adding complexity and freshness to the black cherry and cassis fruit. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and long, this is really super stuff, with tea-like notes emerging on the finish and lingering silky-dusty tannins... Jeff Ames has made the wines for Napa PR legend-turned-vintner Tor Kenward for more than a decade now, turning out rich, seductive wines from a bevy of top vineyards across Napa. Tasting through the lineup of bottled 2019s, what stands out is the quality of the tannins produced by these sites and the inherent balance they each maintain. These wines are expensive, but the pedigree of the sites, the quality of the winemaking and the passion of the owner are all noteworthy. If there was any doubt about the latter, Kenward has recently published a book, "Reflections of a Vintner," that should be on any Napa-phile's reading list."
