To Kalon, one of Napa Valley’s most famous vineyards, was first planted in 1868 by viticulture pioneer Hamilton W. Crabb. The vineyard’s angle of sun exposure and complexity of soils foster diverse flavor profiles in the grapes. Located in the Oakville American Viticultural Area, it is one of California’s finest sites for Cabernet Sauvignon. Our grapes come from the Beckstoffer Vineyard, a section of To Kalon that is trained to bilateral cordon with vertical shoot positioning. Clusters are positioned for optimum sun exposure to develop fully ripe, lush flavors. When the grapes reached peak maturity, we carefully hand harvested the clusters into half-ton bins at the break of dawn.
