TOR Anniversary Cuvee Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2010 750mL
2010 marked the winery’s tenth anniversary, and so they produced this “anniversary” wine. This was hand sorted and destemmed and put in a closed-top tank where it got three pump-overs a day until four days prior to finishing fermentation (which lasted 18 days) when it was backed down to one a day. This was barreled down to a combination of 90% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels and bottled unfined and unfiltered 18 months later. Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (50% Clone 337 and 50% Clone 6), the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Anniversary Cuvee is medium to deep garnet colored with youthful blackberries, black cherries and dried herbs with earth, charcuterie, truffles and mossy bark. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with bags of vibrant fruit and an earthy finish. 150 cases were made, originally released in January 2013.
