Wine Review: This midnight black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the To Kalon Vineyard is terrific. It opens with a black currant bouquet with hints of cedar, cherry and floral notes. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of integrated mild oak and blueberry. We also detected hints of minerality. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are dusty and linger nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this stellar Cab with filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Intensity, muscle and concentration define our Reserve vineyard-designated wine from Napa Valley's grand cru site, To Kalon. A complex blend of fresh blackberry, wild berry compote, cassis, dark cocoa powder, forest floor, all-spice, and sweet vanilla, with balancing acidity, make this a perfect Anniversary wine.
