2007 Bacio Divino Cellars Janzen Cabernet Sauvignon, Beckstoffer to Kanon Vineyard, Napa Valley, USA
Wine EnthusiastToo ripe and too oaky, and both attributes reinforce each other. The blackberry and currant fruit approaches Port in raisiny ripeness, while the oak accentuates the tannic sweetness. Clumsy now, but sometimes these wines improve in the long run. Try holding until after 2013.
Wine AdvocateVery deep garnet-black colored, the 2007 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers wonderfully expressive Chinese five spice, sandalwood, cardamom, eucalyptus and cinnamon toast notes over a core of preserved plums, creme de cassis and dried mulberries. Very big, concentrated and full-bodied in the mouth, this stunning pedal-to-the-metal effort has beautifully plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with persistent exotic spices notes.
Wine AdvocateNot surprisingly, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To-Kalon has an opaque purple color and a glorious nose of graphite, camphor, creme de cassis, fruitcake, and some subtle new oak. It is full-bodied, moderately tannic, but very rich, concentrated, and another convincing example from this terroir in Oakville. Proprietor, Claus Janzen, continues to turn out one of the best values in Napa.
