Very unexpected. You were absolutely right about this sensational bottle of wine. @Martin G Rivard I need several bottles of this in my cellar. Martin stop pouring me these wines… I'm moving in!

One of best To Kalons I have had...bravo to the entire Janzen team. Dense ripe black and red fruits with a bit of smoke and spice and long polished finished. Getting better every 20min. Crushed it w some bone and the KC strip!

At L’Albatros in Cleveland. Spectacular balance. A little earth. So good.

Super complex. Ripe black cherries, soy sauce, licorice, tar, and a hint of mint. Pop n pour. Each bottle keeps getting better with time.

Best overall BtK value IMO. Dense, jammy, concentrated, and sweet/savory. Marathon finish. Has gotten better with time in the bottle. Total steal.

Tied with Realm for best BTK in my view but like 1/2 the price. Scorched earth, charred black cherries and coconut.

This beauty is exactly why i am so in love with USA Cabernet. Very Bordeaux like but with a little sweetness. Very seductive.

Holy sh*% is this good. Super complex nose of light and dark berries, cigar box, and dust. Changes every time I smell it. Big everything (fruit, tannin), high viscosity mouthfeel, 60 second finish. I can't stop sipping it.
