Robert Mondavi "Reserve," To Kalon Vineyard, Caberent Sauvignon 2017 (Napa Valley, CA)
Producer Notes: As ever, this wine expresses the singular elegance and powerful character of To Kalon Vineyard. Our Reserve is blended from the finest blocks within To Kalon. The wine coats the mouth with fine tannins and sings with lively acidity.
Jame Suckling, 97 Points: "Wonderful aromas of fresh herbs, such as sage and mint. Currants. Extremely aromatic. Full body. Fantastic tension and focus. Reminds me of the 1974. Really exceptional. Gorgeous. Cool and sleek. Try after 2023, but already fascinating to drink."
Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points: “With tiny amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this reserve-worthy wine is age-worthy and structured, with hugely concentrated red fruit and bursts of dried herb. Tight-grained tannins emphasize its power as underlying acidity builds on the palate to provide a hint of brightness. Enjoy best from 2027–2030. ~ VIRGINIE BOONE"
Wine Spectator, 92 Points: “Very solid, with a direct beam of steeped black currant and plum fruit, carried by hints of loam and black licorice. A loamy note mingles with the fruit through the broad finish, while light herb and singed alder hints check in. Best from 2021 through 2031."
