Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Cabernet Franc shows its hedonistic side in the rich, round texture of this wine, with blackberry and red currant fruits mingling with violet floral and a hint of savory complexity that are tightly woven into each sip of this deliciously bright Cabernet Franc.
Vineyard Notes
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.” 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 To Kalon Vineyard lies on prime benchland in west Oakville. The low fertility, well-drained soils and optimal sun exposure yield rich, complex flavors and impeccable fruit maturity.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand-harvested into small bins and carefully sorted in our gravity-flow cellar. The clusters were gently destemmed directly into traditional French oak tanks for cold soak, fermentation and extended maceration – a total of 31 days of wine to skin contact – maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins fleshy and supple. The new wine was drained and gently pressed into French-oak barrels (44% new) for malolactic fermentation, assuring seamless integration of fruit and oak. The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over the 22 months of barrel aging. The wine was bottled in August of 2016.

A majority varietal wine, this also includes 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec and 2% Merlot. Fleshy and full bodied, it offers notes of cedar, graphite and ripe black currant atop a lengthy, classy and structured body.

Oakville through the lens of savory, mineral cabernet franc, this wine focuses on a firm tannic line backfilled with supple, black flavor. That flavor is as much about obsidian as blackberries, lasting with a cool feel. Its gamey tone suggests a match with roast squab or braised hare. All the fruit for this wine grows at To Kalon.

Aromas of blackberry and blueberry with some dark chocolate. Full body, tight and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs some time to open., December 21, 2017
