2013 Robert Mondavi 'To Kalon Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Oakville
In the modern era no vineyard has come to define the greatness of Oakville for Cabernet Sauvignon more than To Kalon, which sits roughly atop a gravel alluvial fan that emerges eastward from the Mayacamas Range. It's been the core of Mondavi's Reserve Cabernet for decades, and it is the only source for their 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which Parker describes as
"A beautifully polished wine, with a dense ruby/purple color, it is still tightly knit and showing high-quality oak. The wine is full-bodied and rich, with outstanding depth, ripeness and purity. There is plenty of backbone and tannin for 25-30 years of cellaring. The wine shows notes of chocolate and plenty of blackcurrant fruit and blackberry. This is a beauty and certainly a great reserve and worthy homage to the legendary Robert Mondavi."
If ever we recommend a Cabernet Sauvignon for long-term aging, this is it. Rich, savory, unfurling an enticing bolt of cassis liqueur fruit on the palate, this is one to put away for 15 or more years, and savor the great 2013 Vintage one bottle at a time.
Robert Mondavi founded his namesake winery in 1966 at the age of 53. He wasn't flush with cash, but he had a big dream. He envisioned that a more gracious lifestyle can be lead through the appreciation of wine, food and art. When he came to Oakville in the Napa Valley he saw the land upon which he could build his dream winery and make wines to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best wines from around the globe. Well, the Italian farm boy made good, launching what would become the first major winery in the Napa Valley after the end of Prohibition. Robert Mondavi Winery revolutionized the world of American wine by focusing on quality grape cultivation and embracing hospitality as a part of the wine business. At their Oakville estate, styled in homage to the missions of early California, the warm spirit of hospitality is ever present. Drop by, they'd love to see you.About Robert Mondavi
