This may be the most transcendent wine we’ve ever crafted from this iconic vineyard. The fruit was harvested on October 11 and sorted at the winery before undergoing native yeast fermentation over 19 days. After pressing, the wine experienced full malolactic fermentation in barrel. We aged the wine in New Taransaud and Darnajou French Oak for 20 months.

The nose on our 2009 Knights Bridge To Kalon Cabernet Sauvignon is drenched in dark, ripe blackberry, blueberry, and violets. The quintessential To Kalon pedigree exposes itself on the palate with complex layers of creme de cassis, briar fruit, and spice box framed by well-integrated tannins. As big and rich as this wine is, it displays tremendous elegance and an almost supple quality. Generous tannins come across as smooth, dense and rich with a long, sweet finish. Accessible upon release, this wine will evolve gracefully for decades.
