Tor Wines Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard Pure Magic 2018
2018 TOR "Pure Magic" Cabernet Sauvignon To-Kalon VNY, 750ml: This exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon from TOR Wines hails from the renowned To-Kalon Vineyard in Napa Valley. The 2018 "Pure Magic" offers a beautiful expression of dark fruit, cassis, and graphite, with hints of chocolate and fine-grained tannins. The wine's exceptional structure and balance make it an excellent choice for pairing with dishes like a savory herb-crusted rack of lamb or a rich beef bourguignon.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) - This is a new wine in the TOR range—a very clever co-fermented blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc coming from three blocks at Beckstoffer's To Kalon vineyard: B, F and D blocks. The 2018 Red Blend Pure Magic Beckstoffer To Kalon B F D prances out of the glass with flamboyant scents of black currant pastilles, red currant jelly, stewed plums and Morello cherries with suggestions of underbrush, charcoal, bouquet garni and lavender plus a touch of garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate struts out a solid frame of exquisitely ripe tannins and bold freshness supporting the multilayered black and red berry flavors, finishing with epic length and an amazing display of mineral fireworks. 125 cases were made.
