Tasting Notes:

95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby/purple-colored, notes of sweet crème de cassis, blackberry, charcoal and toast are present in the subtle but intense aromatics. The wine is full-bodied and classically crafted, building incrementally on the palate and displaying full-bodied richness, sweet tannin, and a potential to age for 25-30+ years. This is a beauty.

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famous historic site, with 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It startles in beauty and grace, with plenty of power and concentration. It’s a charismatic wine, bright in red currant and black cherry and a soft, supple texture that holds an underlying grip and toasty oak spice. (VB) (2/2018)

94 points Vinous

 The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a model of elegance and classicism. Dark, powerful and intense but also a touch linear in the style of the vintage, the 2014 Reserve hits all the right notes. Readers will have to give the 2014 at least a few years in bottle, but all the elements are in the right place for the wine to develop beautifully over the years and decades to come. (AG) (12/2016)

93 points Decanter

 This vintage’s Mondavi Reserve leads with notes of red and black plum, vanilla, dried herbs and pencil shavings; the prelude to a supple, open-knit palate with a good core of juicy fruit and tangy acids. There is a touch of oak tannin which will need some time to integrate further. (WK) (5/2017)

93 points James Suckling

 This shows some valley floor dusty texture with blueberry and currant character. Medium body, fine and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Shows the To Kalon magic. (12/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

 Supple and heady with the richness of Oakville Cabernet, this is a plush, espresso-scented red. Associate Editor Geoff Millar described it as an “oak rocket with dark fruit inside,” the oak propelling the fresh raspberry and blackberry flavor. Winemaker Genevieve Janssens selects this wine from the vineyard that surrounds the winery, working with a range of blocks for this Reserve, including vines dating to 1974. (2/2018)
