Robert Mondavi chose Oakville for the home of his winery in 1966 and planted Cabernet Sauvignon with the goal of creating wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. Most of the grapes for our Oakville District Cabernet Sauvignon come from our To Kalon Vineyard where the low-fertility, well-drained soils, aided by optimal sun exposure, lead to rich, complex flavors and impeccable fruit maturity.

Pts. Wine Spectator "Rich and seductive in feel, with a lovely swath of loamy-edged steeped plum and blackberry compote flavors, backed with flashes of anise and sweet bay leaf. A loamy edge extends nicely in lockstep with the fruit on the finish. Textbook Oakville Cabernet. Best from 2022 through 2034. 9,791 cases made." — J.M., Wine Spectator, October 31, 2021
