This bottle with the red and black label is a blend of Cabernet clones planted at To Kalon. While it might remind you of a favorite Left Bank property in Bordeaux, it is classic Oakville fruit, 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
