Complete, succulent, woven.
Harvested from the preeminent To Kalon Vineyard, which rests behind the Mondavi winery in Oakville, this superb red saw extended maceration and was moved into all new French oak barriques for a secondary fermentation, then aged 20 months before blending into the final wine. It was bottled in August of 2017 and aged again in bottle.
It has a rich, complex and serious nose: black currents and blueberries, brown spices, dried herbs and salted, smoked meat aromas are defined. It's a complete wine, fresh and balanced, succulent and deftly woven. Generous bordering on opulent with a long, chocolaty finish.
