This wine is a true expression of our To Kalon Vineyard's historic Robert's Block, our renamed T Block first planted in 1960. When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon Vineyard as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked: “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.” Situated on prime benchland in west Oakville, the low fertility, well-drained soils combine with optimal sun exposure to yield rich, complex flavors and peak fruit maturity. The dry farmed, head-trained, cane-pruned vines on Robert's Block offer purity of varietal expression, great concentration and depth of flavor. A small amount of fruit was selected from our equally historic I Block, for its key contribution of minerality, length and elegance.

Pts. James Suckling "Exotic aromas of mangoes and papaya with some lemons and honeysuckle. Limes, too. Dense, yet framed with bright acidity that gives it verve." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2020
Pts. Wine Spectator "An aromatic mix of honeysuckle, lemon curd and dried mango is set on a rich body, with fresh acidity keeping the flavors light-footed." - Maryann Worobiec, Wine Spectator, May 2020
