What’s crazier…

The government admitting that we have UFOs floating around the ocean, OR finding the ultimate Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet for a suspiciously low $99??

No conspiracy here. We have 100% certifiable proof of the latter’s existence. THE Mondavi Reserve TO KALON, boasting 97 points – in fact, Suckling writes “reminds me of the 1974. Really exceptional.”

For an otherworldly discount from $175 down to $99.

Here. In our hands. Today!

Of course, you know Mondavi. And you probably recognize the venerable To Kalon. The infamous Oakville vineyard shared by Mondavi and Andy Beckstoffer has been breeding countless 95–100-point Cabs for decades. No, make that for centuries! Prices often float north of $200 per bottle for these coveted wines. The ceiling is easily over $500 for comparable current vintages. Even higher with age!

What’s it like you ask? Black as night in the glass, and simply a hedonistic delight for your taste buds. Flowing with torrents of opulent richness – violets, kirsch, creme de cassis, red currants, tobacco, vanilla. It’s ALL wrapped up in there in a beautiful mouthcoating velvety texture. We’re talking King Midas levels of richness. Just pure, decadent, heady stuff. Best price on the planet, too, BY A MILE!

Pro tip: put at least a PAIR of these into your locker for a special occasion. More if you can afford it. Just do it quickly because this deal will vanish without a trace – like memories in front of that Neuralizer pen thing from Men in Black.

97 points – James Suckling

“Wonderful aromas of fresh herbs, such as sage and mint. Currants. Extremely aromatic. Full body. Fantastic tension and focus. Reminds me of the 1974. Really exceptional. Gorgeous. Cool and sleek. Try after 2023, but already fascinating to drink.”
