2011 Knights Bridge Cabernet Sauvignon, To Kalon Magnum 1.5L
A classic To Kalon nose of cassis, blackberry, graphite, and violets emerge from the glass. The succulent palate possesses restrained tannins with interlacing layers of sweet black fruit, roasted cocoa bean, pipe tobacco, and smoked meat. An alluring, Bordeaux-like expression of this legendary vineyard, the 2011 vintage will reward patient cellaring. Decanting this wine in its youth will allow it to best display its many intriguing aromas.
This wine is stunning when paired with dishes that echo its earthy, savory elements. We recommend pairing it with a Grilled Rib Eye with Roasted Maui Onions and Chanterelles.
Magnums are impressive gifts for the serious collector and ideal for celebrations. Family gatherings, holiday parties, weddings, or just a get-together with other wine lovers can be a reason to open a large bottle. Frankly, a magnum is somehow more fun and festive than two standard bottles! For those interested in making wine investments, large-format bottles are an excellent cellaring and aging option and are always a wonderful and generous present for the most deserving on your holiday gift list.
