The Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon 2018 is produced solely from fruit grown in the historic Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is taken from four blocks within this legendary site before being aged for 20 months in roughly 80% new French oak barriques. The resulting wine is simply mesmerising. In his recently published report on 2018 Napa Valley, leading critic Jeb Dunnuck awarded a perfect, 100 point score to the Lithogy Beckstoffer To Kalon 2018. 2018 represents the first vintage that Alejandro Bulgheroni have received a 100 points score, an incredible feat in just 4 years from the estate’s birth.

About Alejandro Bulgheroni

Founded only recently in 2014, international maestro Alejandro Bulgheroni's Napa Valley venture has had a meteoric ascension. This success should come as no surprise to followers of Alejandro, who may be familiar with the excellent wines from his estates in the Barossa Valley, Brunello di Montalcino, Bordeaux, Argentina and the legendary Bodega Garzón in Uruguay. This is a winemaker with the Midas touch, and even amongst pantheons of his wines, the Lithology series from the most famous North American region shines particularly brightly.

Comprised of some of the finest lands in all of California, Bulgheroni's Napa estate is located in St. Helena at the base of the Howell and Vaca mountain ranges. Since its purchase in 2014, no expense has been spared, and no stone left unturned in the quest to produce the best wines possible, with a total upgrade of all infrastructure and equipment.

The team assembled by Bulgheroni reads like a "who's who" of legendary winemaking. It includes both Philippe Melka (Dominus, Pétrus), as well as arguably the most in-demand consultant in the world, Michel Rolland. Together, they have crafted a range of wines under the "Lithology" label, reserved for single-vineyard expressions of the finest, most heralded terroirs in Napa.
