Critical Acclaim

V 96
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard comes across as big, tight and powerful. This is one of the more reticent, inward of the 2009 Schraders. Tar, licorice, menthol and violets are some of the notes that wrap around the intense, virile finish. Today the CCS is a touch compact. It will merit a higher score if the fruit fills out a little more. CCS is clone 4 from the C1 block. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
Rating: 96+

Wine Spectator

Dense and chewy, offering edgy tannins but also a wealth of complex flavors built around dark berry, mocha, cedar, spice and tobacco leaf, with a fantastic aftertaste. A rustic expression of To Kalon. Best from 2014 through 2030.
