Other Reviews….
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon shows beautiful elegance and poise, with classic cassis and currant fruits supported by complex dried herb, unsmoked tobacco, and flowery incense nuances. Coming from gravelly, well-drained soils, it’s full-bodied, has classic To Kalon opulence, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s an utterly classic Napa Valley beauty to enjoy over the coming 30-40 years. Drink 2022-2052.

This wine has proved to be one of Napa's longest-lived reds, capable of cellaring many decades. If its nose is characteristically reticent, that is to be expected, but the upfront appeal of the vintage shows in the vivid ripe cherry and boysenberry fruit aromas that are laced with vanilla, graphite and cedar. Expansive on the palate with energy and poise, showcasing red and black fruits, savoury herbs, brown spices, and a crushed stone salinity. Very fine, pixelated tannins resolve in a long spicy finish that builds with notes of chocolate and crushed flowers. Drink 2022-2032.

This has wonderful purity of black fruit, with an inky, savory edge. Beautiful nose of blackcurrants, bark, black tea, licorice and oyster shells. It's full-bodied, yet so elegant, with firm, supple tannins. Long and creamy, yet firm. So much focus. Cabernet sauvignon with 2% petit verdot. Try this after 2024.

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve is an impressive effort. Marked by scents of cedar, cassis, black cherries and tobacco, it's full-bodied and rich on the palate, then finishes long and velvety, with a frankly yummy hint of caramel. Drink 2023-2040.
