Winemaker 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 1999 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.

Wine Enthusiast
Oaky. A bit backward, closed. Lots of primary fruit varietal character in the aroma. Coffee, smoke, ash, cedar. In the mouth, potent blackcurrants, cassis, massive middle. Wonderful tannins, rich, ripe, sweet. The finish is long and intense.

Wine Spectator
Complex aromas of mint, dried currant, fresh earth, roasted coffee and mineral give this an unusually complex and distinctive array of flavors. Full-bodied, firm and well-structured, hitting a nice drinking stage. Ends with subtlety and finesse.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon To-Kalon Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine boasts an excellent texture, although the finish is austere. Sweet black currant and blackberry fruit are wrapped with subtle oak and a weedy, tobacco herbaceousness. It is deep, dense, full-bodied, and impressively textured as well as concentrated. However, the high tannin profile suggests it should be cellared for 4-5 years; it will last 20-25 years.
Range: 90-92

Robert Mondavi  Winery Video

Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 by winemaking pioneer Robert Mondavi, whose vision was to create Napa Valley wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. It was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition, Robert Mondavi Winery created the foundation for the modern-day California wine industry. Today, Robert Mondavi Winery continues to pursue the fullest expression of Napa Valley terroir in wines that are also varietally authentic. Mondavi chose to situate his estate next to To Kalon Vineyard, one of the most coveted wine growing parcels in the world, known for producing award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and for its Sauvignon Blanc.One of the first goals Robert Mondavi set for himself was recreating Sauvignon Blanc, which was, at the time a sweet, unnuanced wine. He sought inspiration in Loire Valley Pouilly Fumé, enlivening it with a uniquely California profile. He named the delightfully rich and refined yet bright, fresh wine he created Fumé Blanc. It’s Sauvignon Blanc, plus so much more. Released in 1968, Fumé Blanc remains Mr. Mondavi’s signature and one of Robert Mondavi Winery’s most popular wines.

The first vintage (1966) of Robert Mondavi Winery's Cabernet Sauvignon is released. A shot heard throughout the Valley, it would inspire the waves of pioneers to follow. In time, the path Robert Mondavi cleared would lead to the creation of some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Merlots and Sauvignon Blancs in the world.

“Our mission at Robert Mondavi Winery is to produce wines of elegance and complexity that are recognized globally for their exceptional quality,” says Geneviève Janssens, chief winemaker at Robert Mondavi Winery.
