This is the eighth vintage of our To Kalon Vineyard-designated Reserve. When Robert Mondavi chose this 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.” Each year our blend reflects the Grand Cru quality of this singular vineyard. The Reserve is blended from the finest blocks within the To Kalon Vineyard, and meticulously crafted by keeping each block or sub-block separate through fermentation and aging, until we create the blend the following year. 

Pts. James Suckling "Gorgeous aromas of lead pencil, graphite, blackcurrant, earth and moss. Full-bodied with silky, creamy tannins. Juicy and expressive, with incredible depth and complexity. The palate just keeps going, too. Fruity and powerful at the start, but turns more mineral and savory by the end. Superb. Best after 2024." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, September 21, 2022
Pts. Wine Spectator "Dark and winey, with a smoldering intensity to the flavors of black currant preserves, fig paste and plum reduction. The structure is loamy, rich and driven in feel, while tobacco and warm stone accents play their supporting role. A brick house with a bit of an old-school feel. To be released September, 2021. Best from 2023 through 2036. 3,048 cases made." - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, October 31, 2021
