This Napa Valley historic site always blows our socks off but this A.O. To Kalon took us to a different world. Dense and polished entrance and evolving into layers of fine-grained tannins with notes of black and red licorice, fresh plums, white flowers and blackberry sorbet. There is a reason why To Kalon is argued to be the best vineyard in all of Napa. Give this one a ride and you’ll see why.

Just about pure perfection in a glass, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon is a majestic, opulent, heavenly example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Loaded with notions of crème de cassis, incense, flowery spice, and earth, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, weightless texture, building yet sweet tannins, and a great, great finish. There are 470 cases of this elixir that will knock your socks off over the coming 15-20 years
