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 creme 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.
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.
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.
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. Drink in 2019.
The complexity, power, and sophistication of fruit from the To Kalon site is on full display in this vineyard-designated Reserve, with sweet dark cherry and richly concentrated blackberry fruits; a savory, earthy complexity; and toasty oak, vanilla, and spice which linger through the luxuriously long finish.
