2.295,00 DKK

Er på lager fra ultimo maj måned!


Winery notes: To inspire his vision for Highest Beauty, map in hand, Andy Erickson tasted his way through 56 individually fermented blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon from our To Kalon Vineyard. To connect flavor and texture with soil and sun, he then walked the blocks, fine tuning his selections. Along with being a winemaker, Andy is also a highly experienced, hands-on winery designer. Leaving no detail to chance, he helped build the fermenters used to craft this small-lot wine.


99 points James Suckling: "This pure cabernet sauvignon is the real deal with redcurrant and terracotta character on both the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, yet really reserved and ultra-refined. The quality of the tannins is super with such fine grain, yet it continues on for minutes. This is the first release and it shows beautiful classicism. Shows the essence of the place. Needs four or five years to come around. Try after 2023." (12/2020)


97 points Wine Spectator: "A large wine, with a dense, layered core of black currant, blackberry and fig fruit paste flavors, steeped with sagebrush, tar, loam and tobacco accents. A bolt of warm cast iron runs through the finish, providing structure and support that should allow this to cruise for two decades in the cellar. A terrific combination of intense, modern, clearly defined fruit, with an old-school grounding in terroir. *Highly Recommended* (JM)" (12/2019)


97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A new project focusing on the To Kolan Vineyard, these wines are made by the talented Andy Erickson. There are less than 600 cases of the 2016 Highest Beauty, and it's all Cabernet Sauvignon, from eight different blocks in the famed To Kalon Vineyard, that spent 21 months in new French oak. It reveals a deep, inky color as well as a classic Cabernet nose of blackcurrants, cassis, tobacco leaf, liquid violets, espresso, and flowery incense. This carries to a full-bodied, powerful To Kalon that has nicely integrated acidity, ripe, present tannins, and beautiful length on the finish. This is a ripe, sexy, yet flawlessly balanced Cabernet that can be drunk today with incredible pleasure or cellared for 15-20 years, if you’re so inclined." (01/2020)
