TOR KENWARD Cabernet Franc, Beckstoffer To Kalon 2013

For the past decade, Tor has been working with just 2 blocks of Cabernet Franc in Beckstoffer To Kalon, which he primarily used for blending, but Tor’s Vision was to one day showcase this wine on its own. The moment was right in 2013 and Tor produced his first bottling of Cabernet Franc from Beckstoffer To Kalon, and it is a complete success. This compelling wine delivers seductive aromas of fresh black cherries and sweet cassis followed by sweet spices, fresh tobacco, leather, tar and violets. On the palate this offers a lovely suave texture with remarkable overall balance and finesse with delicious ripe fruits expanding on the finish. This wine constantly evolved with each minute in the glass and I expect to continue to do so over the next decade. (Best 2016-2028) - November, 2015 (JD)
