Originally planted in 1868 by Hamilton Crabb, the To Kalon vineyard has produced some of the Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
A beautiful iteration from this legendary Oakville vineyard, the 2017 To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is exotic and racy, with complex spice notes on the nose along with violets, lavender and hints of tapenade. The palate is full and layered yet delicate, with flavors of blackberry pie, licorice, cherry preserve, cassis and wet clay minerality. Plush tannins carry through the long captivating finish.
