Sourced from the Beckstoffer Bourn Vineyard, this is an utterly compelling blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petite Sirah from the talented duo of David Beckstoffer and Benoit Touquette. The 2015 Kata begins with alluring aromatics of ripe black currants and blueberries which are beautifully woven together with exotic spices, chocolate shavings, violets, sage and mineral accents that all come together and soar from the glass. On the palate this is every bit as stunning, full-bodied, intense and concentrated, yet displaying remarkable poise. It continues to impress with its wonderful purity and depth, as layers of ripe dark fruits, exotic spices and violets all continue to build and resonate through the long, opulent finish. A simply majestic wine, which is thoroughly impressive and flat-out delicious right now, yet should also have an extremely bright future ahead.
