    There are approximately 1,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famed Oakville vineyard called To-Kalon. The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon To-Kalon (virtually 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays a dense ruby/purple color, as well as a sweet nose of black currants intermixed with cedar, licorice, toast, and earth. It has lost much of the fat it exhibited last year, and no longer seems as impressive as it once did. A wine of finesse and elegance, it offers much pleasure. Drink it over the next 14-15 years.

Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 and for decades has produced quality California wines that represent New World innovation on a global scale. The winery is located in Oakville, at the center of Napa Valley. The Mondavi family is well known for its dedication to research and experimentation in winemaking, as well as for helping establish the modern-day wine business in the post-Prohibition era. Some of Mondavi's innovations include the introduction of cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks and the use of French oak barrels in the late 1960s. Furthermore, Mondavi's technological innovations to improve the quality of wine and its focus on natural farming techniques have made a fundamental impact on the industry as a whole. For over 20 years Mondavi has been a leader in environmental responsibility, promoting sustainable farming and conservation.

The Robert Mondavi Winery produces wine in four categories: Napa Valley Wines, District Wines, Reserve Wines, and Limited Availability Wines. The Napa Valley wines are made from fruit blended across the region, whereas the District wines reflect the terroir of a particular appellation within the Valley. The Reserve wines are made from selected vineyard fruit that benefits from cellar aging. The Limited Availability Wines are unique varietal expressions (or blends) whose fruit is sourced from venerable vineyards throughout the Napa Valley and Carneros.
