Robert Mondavi To Kalon Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
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.
