Winemaker's Notes:

For 130 years, To Kalon Vineyard has produced complex, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon wines. The highly extracted flavors, velvety tannins and exquisite balance of our 1998 To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon are the signature of this historic vineyard's old vines and unique terroir. Combining power and elegance, the wine unfolds in layers of black cherry, black raspberry, minerals, earth and cedar. The flavors and texture are rich and multi-layered; the finish is long and velvety. Gentle hand crafting, including natural clarification through barrel to barrel racking, and aging in new French chateau barrels wove warm spice nuances through the opulent layers of dark fruit.

About Robert Mondavi Winery:

For more than 40 years, Robert Mondavi Winery has been the symbol of Napa Valley. Founded in 1966, it was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition (1933), and went on to establish the foundation for modern California winemaking. Robert Mondavi Winery's mission-styled architecture, with the expansive archway and bell tower designed by Cliff May, has become an enduring landmark that honors California's history. With the philosophy that great wines reflect their origins, Robert Mondavi Winery pursues the fullest expression of the terroir of its Napa Valley vineyards: the historic To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville American Viticultural Area (AVA), and the Wappo Hill Vineyard in the Stags Leap Vineyard AVA.
