Cabernet Sauvignon, ROBERT MONDAVI, Napa Valley, California

There is no name or label on a bottle that embodies California Wine more than this one.  One could make a case that Chardonnay is most stereotypically California, but from Napa Valley it has to be Cabernet Sauvignon.  And, this one is 100% Napa Valley and 40% of that is from the legendary To Kalon Vineyard!  Planted originally in 1868, the To Kalon Vineyard has become recognized as one of the first-growth vineyards of the world.  Ancient Greek for “the highest beauty,” To Kalon is the historic vineyard that provides Robert Mondavi Winerywith grapes for its world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.

Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.  The Robert Mondavi Winery winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on the tradition to always strive higher, to pursue Mr. Mondavi’s goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.
