Rare new release from the To Kalon Vineyard and winemaker Andy Erickson. Limited.

Named after the founder of To Kalon, H.W.C is produced from one single clonal selection of Cabernet Sauvignon within To Kalon. These vines were originally planted by Robert Mondavi, who was lured to To Kalon by the depth and richness of the wines he made from the vineyard in the 1960s. This incredibly low-yielding selection of Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines with high energy, a black-purple color, and exceptional aromatic and palate intensity—a high-resolution look at this noble variety. The inaugural vintage captures all the best attributes of 2018, with great balance, purity, and density. While not overly ripe or extracted, the wine has remarkable freshness, texture, richness, and length. Four extra months of barrel aging give it a high level of polish and a silky finish.

When pioneer H.W. Crabb bought a sizable parcel of land in west Oakville in 1868, planted the now-famous parcels to several hundred grape varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon rising to be crowned the King of them all - he created a winemaking and grape-growing empire he named To Kalon. Today it is often referred to as Napa’s “First Growth” vineyard, its most iconic vineyard and is firmly established as ultra-premium grape-growing real estate in the Napa Valley.  Undisputedly, the original land expanse is one of the finest in the world for growing world class Cabernet Sauvignon.  Throughout the last 150 years, plots have changed hands and currently, Constellation (who also owns Robert Mondavi, The Prisoner Wine Co. and more) owns over 450 acres, 89 acres are owned by Andy Beckstoffer, and smaller portions are owned by Opus One (a joint-venture between Baron Philippe Rothschild and Constellation), Detert Family, MacDonald and a division of UC Davis.  Each parcel displays a common thread of pure excellence exhibited in the fruit, while surrounded by visible beauty of the highest level.
