A first-growth vineyard, To Kalon, Greek for “highest beauty,” is lined with various clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, creating its signature “spice box” of flavors. Modern trellising and precise farming play a hand in the production of these opulent and coveted vineyard-designated wines. Oakville AVA – Found on low-lying flatlands between the Mayacamas and Vaca Mountains, Oakville AVA is rife with well-drained gravel soils, producing Bordeaux varietals rich in texture and firm, approachable tannins. A vinicultural treasure, Oakville’s warm climate, unique soil composition and topography are ideal for growing renowned Cabernet Sauvignon. Vintage Notes – Another exceptional Napa Valley vintage, the 2019 growing season was marked by a wet spring followed by a long, sunny summer with few extreme heat events. Consistent temperatures helped to preserve the freshness in the fruit while allowing abundant hang time – resulting in concentrated clusters with beautiful color, structure, soft tannins, and bright acidity. These wines will age beautifully for years to come.
