This is a great wine. But this wine is also important. First, it’s made in a true Mondavi style, honed in the ’60s and perfected in the ’80s: this is how Cabs tasted when Napa Valley was first hailed as America’s Bordeaux.
Second, This is like listening to Nirvana’s Teen Spirit for the first time: It contains the truth of Napa and every argument about why it deserves to be one of the world’s great wine regions. Third, it is rare to taste grapes from the To-Kalon vineyard, one of the most famous historical vineyards in Napa.
Fourth, it’s only $30 in PA wine & spirits stores right now. Sure, if you are reading this anytime, but in early 2017 in Philadelphia, be prepared to be very, very jealous: we are buying this bottle for half of what you are paying for. Ha!
