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.
A dark, vibrant purple in color, this wine offers complex aromas of roasted compote and blueberries along with savory floral and herbal notes. The palate features great density and a smooth, juicy center along with enticing mid-palate sweetness. Flavors of dark cherry liqueur and blackberry juice are complemented by licorice and wet minerality that carries through the finish.
