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 alley....it won't last...!
