Robert Mondavi – To Kalon Vineyard Reserve 2013 Oaville – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant, delicate and offers a very beautiful finesse and power (but full of balance). It reveals notes of crunchy berries, juicy blackberry and fine touches of plum associated with fine hints of fleshy wild strawberry, subtle touches of tonka bean, cardamom, flowers (violet, cornflowers) and a very discreet hint of brown sugar (in the background). The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, melodious, aerial and offers a beautiful mineral frame, elegance, a beautiful depthness, a fine acidity, a beautiful precision, a very beautiful definition, suavity, a fine fleshiness, a fine juiciness as well as a beautiful and finely unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy fleshy blackberry, juicy black berries and fine touches of black cherry combined with hints of fleshy / crushed raspberry as well as very discreet hints of strawberry, almond and subtle hints of cardamom. Tannins are fine, firm and still young. Good length. The finish is beautifully gourmande. Beautiful chews on the persistence.
