Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon Vineyard 2014

** angels sing **

TO KALON. Hallowed ground for hardcore Napa Cabernet (Oakville!) aficionados, of course, and Robert Mondavi’s treasured plot of land. We are nearly speechless to have snagged a few cases of the 98-POINT (plus 95 points The Wine Advocate!) new release. For all that’s good and true in this world, if you love luscious Cab with legendary pedigree, DROP what you are doing, ‘cause there is but a whisper of cases to sell….

"Iron fist in a velvet glove", as Wine Spectator puts it, is pretty spot-on here (as it almost always is when discussing To Kalon greatness). As always, this special bottling from the best sections of To Kalon is HEDONISTIC, plush, and come-hither while also being hugely concentrated, powerful and complex. CLASSIC To Kalon class and no rough edges anywhere. The 2014 is virtually irresistible now (heck, we drank a bottle…), with gorgeous black cassis fruit, velvety texture and spice. MMMMMM!! Originally planted in 1868 (!!), the name is Greek for "the highest beauty" -- that is a factoid that will come in handy while savoring this sexy beast with your friends! This will also age for many decades, if you so choose! Best price in America (when you add the free shipping) on an American classic!

Please move quickly if this is up your won't last...!

This is the fourth vintage of the To Kalon Vineyard-designated Reserve. When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon Vineyard in west Oakville as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked that, “It was a vineyard with a distinguished history and a magical nature. Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain—to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.” Those sentiments were re-confirmed when the To Kalon Vineyard was named the Vineyard of the Year by the California State Farm Bureau in 2011. The Reserve is blended from the finest blocks within To Kalon.

About The Producer

Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world's finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world.  Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.
