Decanted for 2 hours. Drank alongside 2007 Materium. The nose on this one was a little more muted. The group preferred the Materium overal.

Great balance in this wine; seamless; beautiful fruit in control and fine tannins in the background. Wood is there but in check. Many more good days ahead for this wine.

Decanted for about two hours. Fabulous. Dark fruits, a bit of chocolate, espresso, tobacco and the licorice shows up in the medium plus finish.

Tannins are still there, but not overwhelming.

Can't wait to taste this again.

Unmistakably to-kalon, ripe, round, velvet, delicious if a bit one dimensional.

Nose is intense blackberry jam and ripe sweet plum. Midpalate is ultra thick and mouthcoating without being even slightly syrupy. Finish is this full throttle with an attack of cassis and blackberry, cocoa powder then this subtle lift of lemon zest. Hands down, this is what Cabernet is all about. I cannot wait to open another one.

Second bottle, tasted 12/22/12. Very consistent with my prior tasting notes back in May. The exception is now I get this salt attack on the tongue followed by all the fruit and cocoa notes. This remains on of the best Cabs I've ever tasted. Exceptional.

Dark purple, nose of cigar, mint faint fruit. Palate brings the same with fairly heavy wood, tobacco, some mint. Fairly tannic. The underlying fruit is nice and makes a late appearance segueing into a nice long finish. Not what I was expecting and may improve over several years. For now somewhat of a letdown.

A very serious, and very seriously overpriced, wine. The style is very modern, but in the sense of low-oak, minerally fruit; a style I quite appreciate. Anyway, the complexity of the fruit is astonishing, and the depth is beyond reckoning for the moment. Definitely has a long life ahead of it.

Brought to dinner out and had it decanted for 30 minutes before tasting; unbelievably smooth and balanced; the fruit is more subdued than I would have expected for such a young wine; this could be shutting down a bit, but can't be sure. This wine has immense potential and should be long lived.

Nose and flavor profile changed over the course of 2-3 hour decant. Initial nose showed powerful fruit which mirrored the rich, full body of the wine. Over the course of decanting the wine, nose moved away from fruit and more towards some dust and vegetal notes. This was a great wine. Tasted the 2010 in December which was absolutely fantastic. Tannins on the 2005 were still pretty potent, so will wait a couple of years before opening our next bottle.

Initially popped and poured. I let this sit in the glass for over an hour after an initial taste. The nose on this wine is amazing. The nose consists of dark berries and that unmistakable signature BTK unexplainable goodness! - WOW! - The palate reveals everything I love about Napa Cabernet! The fruit is so pure and delicious! Pardon me...... but seriously; Jesus Christ would have served this wine at the last supper! The mid palate caresses my tongue and seduces me into an extremely long finish. This is like meeting a French Super Model in Paris who seduces you to marry her and you live happily ever after in her Chateau with a cellar full of every delicious wine you can imagine.......Even the dragons in the moat sing like angels when tasting this wine. Did I mention - WOW!!!! Amazing wine – worth the money (and I honestly did not think I would say that). This will cellar for many years to come. If opening now, decant for at least one and a half hours. Amazing wine!!!

What happened to the finish? The wine hits you with a wonderful nose, followed with an explosion of dark chocolate, currants, and molasses, then the finished lasted 10 seconds?!? Hopefully this is just a phase the wine is going through, I have never noticed this in the past.

Acquired at the winery to try at the restaurant tonite- big thanks to Matt for everything. Deep, dark, almost opaque. Amazingly huge nose of fresh black berry, hint of blue berry, trace of cream, cedar. On the palate, fruit driven with ripe plum and black berry, soft fine grain tannin, enough acidity to keep the fruits clean and fresh - smooth, clean and goes a long way like one of Tiger's swing before the beating. Drinks awesome now, not sure how its going to age as the tannin is already very smooth and kinda fading, but may have enough acid backbone to age?

Just in the barrel for a few months, already starting to integrate. Beautiful dark purple color with a ruby glow. Nice fruit with black berry, currant, licorice and dark chocolate supported with another layer of complexity at the back end, showing some cedar, tobacco, mocha components. A little disjointed, but very together at this stage considering it's a barrel sample from the 2010 vintage. Full-bodied palate, with lots of fruit, chocolate and a little bit of the chalky and dusty thing going on at the back end. Very well made wine, and the potential upon bottling is going to be huge!!! Quite impressive from a small, boutique producer!

There seem to be two categories of top cabernets: 1) earth, pencil lead, tobacco, ect.. and 2) dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla, ect... This wine is defiantly in the second category. Deep dark full bodied wine with one of the longest lasting finishes you will find. Intense flavors that play with you as you notice the depth of the wine. Reminded me a lot of the 2005 Hundred Acre Summer Block Shiraz?!

From barrel sample, this wine is absolutely fabulous. Tremendous balance, complexity, classically dry. This is fabulous stuff. This puts most cult wines to shame. I'd probably give this 96+. The fellow pouring was amusing and had a nice pink shirt:)

What you'd expect from Jacquelynn pulling To Kalon fruit. A beautiful wine with classic To Kalon lush texture and highly perfumed notes and rich ultra long finish.

Complex yet huge! A mouthful of Cabernet that has a long life ahead of it. Needs at least 3 hours of air. Loved it with braised beef.
