Robert Mondavi Winery The Reserve To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$139.99

96 Points - limited                                                               Robert Mondavi's new release of the limited Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. 96 Points James Suckling: "Aromas of black currants, violets, lavender, and stone follow through a full body, chewy tannins and toned muscular structure. This is a Mondavi reserve that harkens back to the great years of the 1970s. A tribute to the 50th anniversary of the winery. Try in 2022." 95 Points Robert Parker: "A beautifully polished wine, with a dense ruby/purple color, it is still tightly knit and showing high-quality oak. The wine is full-bodied and rich, with outstanding depth, ripeness and purity. There is plenty of backbone and tannin for 25-30 years of cellaring. The wine shows notes of chocolate and plenty of blackcurrant fruit and blackberry. This is a beauty and certainly a great reserve and worthy homage to the legendary Robert Mondavi." This is the third vintage ofTo Kalon Vineyard-designated Reserve. When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon Vineyard in west Oakville as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked that, “It was a vineyard with a distinguished history and a magical nature. Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain—to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.” Those sentiments were re-confirmed when the To Kalon Vineyard was named the Vineyard of the Year by the California State Farm Bureau in 2011. The Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is blended from the finest blocks within To Kalon.

Thanks @J Greene for the Coravin! Awesome gift. I justified using it on this great bottle tonight. Will have to get used to wine by the glass!

Lovely, the word that comes to mind is elegant. It feels like it’s in a dumb period though. The fruit is hiding even after long decant. Will check tomorrow.

95+ I planned on opening this up for dinner but when I walked into my parents’ home they had just pulled steaks off the grill...so pop goes the cork. This was as delicious as I wanted it to be. Beautiful, polished, and plenty of restrained power with so many years of life ahead of it. Sweet, plush dark fruits (plums, blackberries, cassis), velvety tannins, and loads of spices, clove, mint, and licorice. Great wine.

I am not big on Mondavi fan but this is a great vintage, smooth finish with medium to heavy body, not butter but very close.
