    December 4, 2021 - smooth opening low tannin. Nice change of pace by not being a bold fruit-forward Napa cab.

    October 15, 2021 - enjoyed it needed an hour to decant and open. Well done.

    August 23, 2021 - The nose lets you know this is To Kalon fruit. Earthy notes on the palate as well. Lush mouthfeel gives way to a long dry finish. Tannins are noticeable, but not unpleasant and there is a good acidity to give balance. This will age nicely.

    February 3, 2021 - Cliff Lede Winery Tasting: Even in an off-vintage, it's worth seeking out this $185 best-possible value from To Kalon (literally: that is the contractual minimum Andy Beckstoffer will allow winemakers to sell for). The '17 has the inkiness, the red/black fruit primaries, and the leather/spice notes that are typical of the site with very slight hints of menthol/alcohol on the back end. The acids are well-balanced. This wine could age a while, but it doesn't need to: it's thinner overall than most of the '12-'16 To Kalons--lending it a more regal, nuanced profile--and it will probably be ready to drink by the December 2022 holidays with a good decant.
