2016 Robert Mondavi "Reserve - To Kalon Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $165)

SKU #1433796 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The flagship 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a more long-term effort yet is loaded with potential. Coming all from Mondavi's To Kalon holdings and seeing an extended maceration and 18 months in new oak, its deep purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackberries, black cherries, smoked tobacco, black licorice, and crushed rocks. With a terrific sense of minerality, subtle background oak, full body, and impeccable balance, hide this bottle for 4-5 years and this beauty will cruise for 3 decades or so. 96+ Inner quote mark (1/2019)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a structured and layered red with currants, ripe berries and hints of chocolate and hazelnuts. Full body. Blueberry, chocolate and spice flavors. Shows focus and craftsmanship. Plus great vineyards. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve opens with beautifully fragrant kirsch, wilted roses, candied violets and dried Provence herbs notes over a core of wild blueberries, red and black currants and mulberries plus wafts of tobacco leaf and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with perfumed, crunchy black fruits framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and finishes long and earthy. (LPB) 96+ Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is dense, powerful and explosive, with serious concentration and tannic heft. Readers should not be in a rush to open the 2016, as it needs time to come into its own. There is plenty to admire and look forward to in this decidedly virile, potent Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Solidly built, featuring a core of cassis, bitter cherry and plum reduction notes, laced up with racy savory, iron and singed cedar accents. Takes a restrained approach, showing subtle energy, but the fruit is sneakily long and the finish nicely grounded. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a hearty, bold and brawny red wine from the famous site, blended with 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Cola, sassafras, earth and leather highlight a dense core of firm tannin and toasted oak, begging for more time in the bottle. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
