Perhaps the best stately young Napa Cabernet I've ever tried from brothers and 3rd gen ToKalon vinetenders/winemakers @Graeme MacDonald & @Alex MacDonald. It's drinking napa history and future, and god damn is it brilliantly delicious.

Tight and a bit tannic, but should become a beautiful wine. Had an 18 hour decant before opening slightly

One of the most intensely concentrated Napa Cabs I have ever tasted. From the BEST parcel of To Kalon up against the hillside (Mondavi has been buying the family fruit for years). Gigantic old narled Cabernet vines....a true Napa treasure.

Decanted for 8 hours. Absolutely stunning in every way! The purity and freshness of fruit on the nose is incredible. Blackberry, violets, graphite, licorice and a hint iron. The palate is broad and perfectly balanced with persistent sweet tannins and and perfect acidity. Everything I could want in a wine.
