Wine Description:
Cliff Lede Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a highly sought-after wine that showcases the expertise of its producer. Located on the western Oakville bench, the renowned Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard possesses gravelly loam soils rich in minerals sourced from the volcanic Mayacamas Mountains and the alluvial fan of the Napa River. The vineyard features low organic matter and excellent drainage, which imparts vigor-reducing conditions to the vines, resulting in small, concentrated berries that are perfect for crafting intensely concentrated wines. Meticulous winemaking techniques are employed to ensure that the wine expresses the full potential of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The result is a wine that exudes elegance and complexity, with rich flavors of dark fruits, velvety tannins, and a long, lingering finish.

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
