Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve Oakville Napa Valley 2017
Happy Sunday, good people of the Western U.S.! We got a special deal today – and none to be had for those on the wrong side of the Mississippi River (they get another wine, but trust me...yours is way, way cooler!). Just too precious. Limited. RARE! I’m talking TO KALON! 97 POINTS. Cabernet sauvignon. From the OG Napa Legend...Robert Mondavi! This is their Reserve To Kalon, 2017 vintage, 6 years young, and heart-stoppingly good RIGHT NOW!
I know, I know, literally, like, no one is reading this, because...obviously...TO-KALON RESERVE, 97 POINTS, deer-in-the-headlights price...DO. WHAT. YOU. MUST! All I can say is...I GOT my case!!! Another one for the Last Bottle hall-o-fame! INCONCEIVABLE!
Got some? OK, cool, you’re back. Hard to know where to start here. How about “Gorgeous”? “Hugely concentrated”? “Fantastic tension...reminds me of the 1974”? All words from the pros, but trust your Napa Valley wine merchant, no matter how you slice this up, it’s a staggeringly awesome deal on a flat-out GORGEOUS, sexy, neuron-firing cabernet from THE world-class vineyard in the heart of Oakville! Age it...like...forever if you want! Can’t speak to the 1974, unfortunately, but we get oodles of black fruits, ultra-plush texture, mocha, mint, currants, anise, and a finish that goes on until you pull the sheets up over your head with a smile on your face!!
Man! Will miracles never cease? While it lasts, people!
A testament to Napa’s grand cru vineyard site, To Kalon’s signature dark-fruited, dried herb complexity is seamlessly integrated with sweet oak spices of vanilla bean and toasted almonds, sending a wave of deliciously intense flavors across the richly dense palate in a tasty expression of power and elegance.

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, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.
Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards, including Stag's Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay).
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.
