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 2018 To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is intense and racy, with complex peppercorn notes on the nose along with savory stone fruit and hints of roasted plums. The palate is full yet delicate, with flavors of dark pomegranate syrup, savory mushroom, and wet clay minerality. Plush, sweet tannins carry through the long, herb-filled finish.
