Purlieu Cabernet Sauvignon 'To Kalon' 2016
From Wine Advocate
2021 - 2050
The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard leaps wantonly from the glass like a rock star doing a stage dive, displaying bold layers of crushed black and red cherries, cassis and wild blueberries scents plus suggestions of cinnamon stick, star anise, sandalwood, oolong tea and potpourri with faint wafts of candied violets and molten chocolate. Full-bodied, concentrated and hedonistically perfumed in the mouth, it possesses a myriad of black fruits with a firm, velvety texture and very long, very spicy finish.
