Along with 2008, this is the best of the recent vintages. Dramatic, explosive flavors impart strength, personality and depth. Robert Mondavi vertical (December 2015). Drink now through 2037. (JL, Web-2016)
Dark ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate are complicated by musky spices and tobacco. Sweet, vinous and deep, conveying a distinct ripeness to the flavors of black raspberry, blueberry and sexy spices. Boasts a wonderfully fine-grained texture and outstanding depth of fruit, as well as the framing energy to give it outstanding energy and definition. Finishes with huge but fully ripe tannins and resounding length. This still tastes like a barrel sample, but with no hardness. (ST, in Vinous) 94+
A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon Vineyard boasts marvelous depth and pure texture. Hints of mocha, espresso, cloves, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of dark, pliant fruit. The 2012 has just been bottled, but it is already hugely expressive. In particular, the addition of 7% Cabernet Franc is quite noticeable in the wine's super-expressive, resonant aromatics. (AG)
From one of the Napa Valley's most historically famous sites, this Cab delivers a testament to gamy blackberry and blueberry alongside complex cassis, clove and black licorice. Full bodied and richly concentrated, it's also soft and well integrated, entirely pleasurable now, with years to go in terms of structure and body. Cellar through 2027 and possibly beyond. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
