Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

2012 vintage. From the only other winery in Knights Valley besides that Peter Michael endeavor. This Beckstoffer To-Kalon/To Kalon/Tokalon/ToKalon (pick your interpretation-seen 'em all) goes for a older-school, much leaner approach vs the decided, new school, über-concentrated style as far as this vineyard is concerned. Goes even leaner than the older, vineyard incorporated Mondavi Reserves from the 80's/90's (which I would rate in the middle ground). All the way to the left for the history buffs. Tremendous concentration but on the dry, dusty, dirty side vs the biggie extracted ripe style in vogue the last decade+. Instructive and elucidating. Twere I doing a Tokalon Vineyard retrospective/blowout dinner, this wine would be first. 9.6.23. — 25 days ago

Château de Sales

Héritiers de Lambert Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

Good value. Dark fruit and spice on the nose. Approachable on opening with plum, dark cherries, blackberries, undergrowth and a touch of graphite. Pleasant mouthwatering acidity at the front followed by moderate lingering tannins. Not a lot of layers but overall very good. — 2 months ago

Yarra Valley Nebbiolo 2021

Lovely Aussi expression of this grape. Lively flavors and smooth in it’s transitions particularly for a wine so young. Closer to a Ghemme than a Barola. Earthy, Raspberry, rose petal, dried fruit, hazelnut. Very approachable young as it is not overly tannic or acidic. — a month ago
