As far back as the 1970s, Robert Mondavi Winery has been bottling the most important Cabernets in Napa Valley. Under the guidance of the late, great Robert Mondavi, incredibly memorable vintages such as 1971, '73, '74, '78, '84, '87 and many, many more into the 1990s and beyond gave us benchmark examples of just how thrilling Cabernets could be in California. Mondavi was a pioneer, a man who never rested; always innovating, changing, and leading the way for an entire industry. Both of these 2014s capture the vintage and excel with what I consider classic Napa cabernet.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby/purple-colored, notes of sweet crème de cassis, blackberry, charcoal and toast are present in the subtle but intense aromatics. The wine is full-bodied and classically crafted, building incrementally on the palate and displaying full-bodied richness, sweet tannin, and a potential to age for 25-30 + years. This is a beauty.

95 points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate (Issue # 228 - Dec 2016)

This is made from a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon from the famous historic site, with 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It startles in beauty and grace, with plenty of power and concentration. It's a charismatic wine, bright in red currant and black cherry and a soft, supple texture that holds an underlying grip and toasty oak spice.

95 points, Virgnie Boone, Wine Enthusiast (Feb 2018)

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a model of elegance and classicism. Dark, powerful and intense but also a touch linear in the style of the vintage, the 2014 Reserve hits all the right notes. Readers will have to give the 2014 at least a few years in bottle, but all the elements are in the right place for the wine to develop beautifully over the years and decades to come.

94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Dec 2016)
