98 points Decanter

A barrel selection of Schrader’s finest lots and bottled only in magnum, this is a massive wine, bursting with smoky blackberry, cassis, incense and creamy baking spices. Textural breadth and suppleness betray To Kalon’s inimitable signature. (WK) 4/2017)

98 points Wine Advocate

Nearly as prodigious is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard, which is Clone 4 and Clone 6 blended together from the Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard, this is the highest in alcohol of the 2012s at 14.6%. It was aged in a combination of 50% new Darnajou and 50% new Taransaud barrels. This wine is one of the tighter, more backward of the 2012s, with more structure, tannin, muscle, a masculine personality, oodles of black and blue fruits and a massive mouthfeel, but is somehow much more primary and younger tasting than the other wines.
