"Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (readers may remember the 2002 merited a 100-point score) has a beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit note, a hint of incense, charcoal, an opaque purple color, full-bodied opulence and again that first-growth quality, richness, complexity and intensity. I’m not sure this is as compelling as the 2002, but it’s not far away. This is a magnificent, multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years. October 2014"

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard’s nose of creme de cassis, licorice, forest floor and espresso bean was followed by a full-bodied, opulent, round, generously endowed wine with no hard edges or flaws, just endless depth. It’s going to be extra special, but it is too early to say whether it will achieve the perfection of its 2002 sibling. The finish lasts 45-50 seconds, and this cuvee has 20-25 years of life ahead of it.
Looking at several 2012 barrel samples reinforces the true greatness of this vintage in Napa Valley. The first-growth Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in the hands of Paul Hobbs can be magical and I had high expectations for the 2012 version. October 2013"

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard captures the pure pedigree of this great site. Round and seamless on the attack, yet backed up by considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is utterly magnificent and complete. Blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, smoke, spices and menthol are layered into the voluptuous, perfumed finish. The 2012 is going to need time, but it is superb. -- Antonio Galloni"
