Solid, seamless, with an incredible sense of flow, the To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon artfully achieves elegance with intensity. Dark wild berries, cocoa powder and a hint of licorice provide the aroma and flavor profile. Broad, full tannins create a velocity that drives the wine through its lengthy finish.

The flagship 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a more long-term effort yet is loaded with potential. Comming all from Mondavi's To Kalon holdings and seeing an extended maceration and 18 months in new oak, its deep purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackberries, black cherries, smoke tobacco, black licorice, and crushed rocks. With a terrific sense of minerality, subtle background oak, full body, and impecable balance, hide bottle for 4-5 years and this beauty will cruise for 3 decades or so.

A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve opens with beautifully fragrant kirsch, wilted roses, candied violets and dried Provence herbs notes over a core of wild blueberries, red and black currants and mulberries plus wafts of tobacco leaf and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with perfumed, crunchy black fruits framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and finishes long and earthy.
