Macauley Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon 2013
Napa Valley Palisades Vineyard
Petite Sirah is first and foremost about tannin. It’s ever present but the quality of it is really what unlocks the enjoyment of the wine. We feel this Palisades site in Calistoga is one of the best PS vineyards in California. It has the perfect amount of varietal bigness but the structure is sweet and forgiving focusing more on the bittersweet chocolate, purple fruited side of the spectrum. Everything is in abundance here but all in equal proportion creating a massive wine that has near perfect balance.
