2003 Beckstoffer To-Kalon Heavyweight The 2003 The Heavy Weight from the Thorevilos Vineyard co-owned and farmed by David Abreu and well-known wine producer Ric Foreman is a blend of 50% Merlot 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and equal parts Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. No shy wine at 15.6% alcohol this 375-case cuvee offers a saturated purple color along with a big sweet nose of charcoal-infused blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with a hint of graphite. Full-bodied but well-delineated and elegant with good structure and a long finish it can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years. I can't say enough good things about Behrens and Hitchcock. This is the type of winery operation that gives hope to aspiring home winemakers who want to make it in the big time. They have followed their dreams unearthed top vineyards that were available to everybody and are making non-interventionalistic wines of extraordinary personality and character. RP
