When Robert Mondavi founded the iconic Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966, his vision was to create Napa Valley wines that would compete with the world's best wines. With a firm conviction that great wines are the result of soil, climate, vineyard management, and winemaking philosophy, the winery continues to pursue Robert Mondavi's goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with technology and programs that break barriers and open new frontiers. Today, Genevieve Janssens leads the winemaking team and has had a long standing relationship with Mondavi's Napa Valley vineyards and estate vineyard at To Kalon since 1978. Most recently she was selected as Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from the To Kalon Vineyard celebrates the 50th anniversary of the great Robert Mondavi and his extraordinary vision to create something special in the heart of Napa Valley. A beautifully polished wine, with a dense ruby/purple color, it is still tightly knit and showing high-quality oak. The wine is full-bodied and rich, with outstanding depth, ripeness and purity. There is plenty of backbone and tannin for 25-30 years of cellaring. The wine shows notes of chocolate and plenty of blackcurrant fruit and blackberry. This is a beauty and certainly a great reserve and worthy homage to the legendary Robert Mondavi. Give it another 2-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 30 years.
