2007 Pont de Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon

2007 Pont de Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon

The California Grand Cru of the new world, To Kalon (Greek for “highest beauty”) has produced many legendary wines of extraordinary terroir, including 100 point scores from Robert Parker. The fruit from Beckstoffer’s Oakville Bench estate contains several blocks of clones 4, 6 and 337. Planted in the mid 1990s, the clay loam of these blocks helps produce small, intensely concentrated clusters.

Wine Profile

Tasting Notes We harvested early in this historic vineyard to preserve its underlying balance and harmony. The sweet aromas, ripe blackberry, and cedar are punctuated by vibrant acidity. We feel that harvesting at just the right moment when flavors, sugar, and acid are optimal we can capture the gracious and seamless quality of the exquisite To Kalon.
Winemaker Notes The clusters were destemmed and whole berries were fermented in stainless steel tank. The wine was aged for 23 months in 100% new French oak.
Food Pairing Notes Pairs perfectly with herb-crusted lamb loin with terrine of potatoes and local haricot vert salad. For dessert, couple with chocolate soufflé cake with crème anglaise and fresh blackberries.
