Tasting Notes We harvested early in this historic vineyard to preserve its underlying balance and harmony. The sweet aromas, ripe blackberry, and cedar are punctuated by vibrant acidity. We feel that harvesting at just the right moment when flavors, sugar, and acid are optimal we can capture the gracious and seamless quality of the exquisite To Kalon.
Winemaker Notes The clusters were destemmed and whole berries were fermented in stainless steel tank. The wine was aged for 23 months in 100% new French oak.
Food Pairing Notes Pairs perfectly with herb-crusted lamb loin with terrine of potatoes and local haricot vert salad. For dessert, couple with chocolate soufflé cake with crème anglaise and fresh blackberries.
