Reserve 50 Anniversary To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Another young one. Chocolate brownie and s’mores, with a coffee marshmallow. Rich vanilla bean creeps in, and warm plum jam that mysteriouslypowders atop pumpkin bread full of the usual spices aromatically. Grape-y, with grainy tannins, first skin of a dark red apple, red incense, cherry skins, lipstick with crispy beef and black soils. The final notes boast oak and blackberry, with cinnamon stick. The middle and finish give you an idea of the depth and breadth that the first aromas belie. #ToKalon #mondavi #robertmondavi #Napa #napavalley2013 #singlevineyard #Oakville #reserve #cabernetday #californiacab #cab — a year ago

Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Happy Father's Day! Grand Cru #tokalon Cabernet, from @paulhobbswinery who is my guilty pleasure go-to #Napa producer. Umami laden Bing cherry, cassis, rich mocha, charcoal, and graphite, this is off the charts in complexity and depth. It should peak within 5 years for intensity and balance, and for wonks like me that like their wines with age, should easily stretch to 15-20 more years. In a great spot now, the umami thing is really pulling me in, surprisingly good mouth watering acidity too! Many try to achieve what Paul can do with ripeness but fail to achieve the intensity married with this careful balance. #paulhobbs — 3 years ago

I was wondering if it was made with the natural acidity of the grapes or from added bags of acidity. The norm in napa.

#robertmondavi #cabernetsauvignon #reserve 2009 #tokalon. Lush. Full of texture, red berry, cocoa, briar. Long finish. Not really offering a ton of nuances, which would have earned it a higher 9. — 5 years ago
