Moving to the reds, I was able to taste two samples of the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, one fermented in concrete and the other fermented in French oak. Both showed brilliantly, with wonderful purity of fruit, the dense, concentrated style of the vintage, and just about flawless balance. As with most top 2021s, short-term cellaring is going to be the name of the game.

Tasting Notes


Soaring aromatics, deep concentration, rich and seamless texture, and a finish that grips tightly, promising long aging potential. Our last two vintages of this wine have both been awarded perfect scores (100pts). It seems to us that this ’21 vintage is as good or better.


Winemaking

Vineyard

The most celebrated vineyard in Napa Valley, this special site on the Oakville Bench has been producing wines of the “highest beauty” for nearly 150 years. We are fortunate enough to pull from three of Andy Beckstoffer’s top blocks for Lithology.
