Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard 2002 (Magnum)Schrader Cellars
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard was the tightest of this trio, with an inky/opaque purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of black truffles, licorice, asphalt, barbecue smoke, and oodles of blueberry and black currant fruit. Full-bodied, with striking purity and a layered, multidimensional texture, its youthful vigor and exuberance suggest a 2- to 3-year-old wine, rather than one that is a decade old. Assuming you can defer your gratification (and I really cannot offer any justification to do so), this wine will improve for at least another 5-10 years, and last for an additional 15+. Like its siblings, this is a Napa Valley legend.
