2016 Amici To Kalon Cabernet Franc Magnum

“Great density and a smooth, juicy center

-Winemaker Tony Biagi

Vineyard Notes

Originally planted in 1868 by Hamilton Crabb, the To Kalon vineyard has produced some of the Napa Valley’s best Cabernets ever since gaining legendary status as one of America’s first-growth vineyards. To Kalon, Ancient Greek for “the highest beauty,” sits on prime Oakville bench land where well-drained, gravelly soils combine with optimal sun exposure to yield rich, complex flavors and impeccable fruit maturity.

Winemaking Notes

A dark, vibrant purple in color, this wine offers complex aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, cassis and eucalyptus along with blackberry and black raspberry leaf. The palate features great density and a smooth, juicy center along with enticing mid-palate sweetness. Flavors of dark cherry, blackberry juice, baking spice and chocolate are complemented by a fresh, mineral clay note that carries through the finish.
