Consistent notes. Med.-dark garnet red; nice full nose of red & black fruit, pepper and other spices, and haberdashery; similar but even more complex flavors; soft, lush, Burgundian-like w/exotic notes; rich and well balanced; med. bodied; soft integrated tannins; fully mature but should hold for a few more years.

My new favorite champagne!! The nose was virus with flowers. The bubbles tiny and active. The color was deep and yellow. The taste was superb.

Terrible wine! Tastes more like wine-flavored milk chocolate than wine. And it is expensive too ($60)...

Surprisingly good for a 2011. This wine is not a Cab Sauv, rather the blend was about 2/3 Cabernet Sauvignon and 1/3 Cabernet Franc. Rather than adding green flavors, the Cab Franc seemed to round out the wine and it was balanced with nice flavor and no green notes. Not a plush wine like many Beckstoffer To Kalons, but quite good.
