RESERVE
2009 MX Cabernet Sauvignon

Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (100%)

Napa Valley’s Oakville AVA

Production:  one barrel (23 cases)

 

This is bottled from my favorite Darnajou barrel.  From start to finish, it was always the rock star in the 2009 vintage.  100% To Kalon, 100% Cabernet, a blend of various Cabernet clones from hand-selected (and of course hand-picked) blocks in the vineyard.

 

Showing fresh red raspberries and blackberries as if just plucked.  It is viscous, lush and plush, and voluminous in the mouth, with soft, supple, almost sweet tannins.  Elegant and immediately drinkable.

To Kalon (toe-ka-lon) is Greek meaning the highest beauty.  This vineyard has been continuously planted to wine grapes since 1868, making it one of America’s oldest and definitely most venerable vineyards for growing award-winning grapes of excellence.  “If California were to have Grand Cru status vineyard sites,

To Kalon would certainly be one.”   Robert Parker

2010 MX Cabernet Sauvignon

Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (100%)

Napa Valley’s Oakville AVA

Production: three barrels (77 cases)

To Kalon (toe-ka-lon) is Greek meaning the highest beauty or the very best.  This vineyard has been continuously planted to wine grapes since 1868, making it one of America’s oldest and definitely most venerable vineyards for growing award-winning grapes of excellence.

“If California were to have Grand Cru status vineyard sites, To Kalon would certainly be one.”   Robert Parker

MX WINES have been featured at world-class restaurants, hotels, and resorts such as Beverly Hills Hotel,  Quince and Boulevard in San Francisco, Napa Valley’s Michelin Three-Star Meadowood in St. Helena, and Calistoga’s Solage

Invigorating Bordeaux-like nose of blue/black fruits, cedar, forest floor, violets, and wet stones.  Across the palate the wine is a graceful understated powerhouse of vibrant, flavorful blackberry and black cherry fruit, with pleasing weight and texture, refined tannins, and a soft nuanced finish.  In short, this is classic To Kalon. Drink now or cellar. It has been said this is the best priced To Kalon one can find these days.
