Quicktake Tour of To Kalon Vineyard

I was fortunate to be able to tour the famous To Kalon Vineyard by bike with Peter Alig, Wine Education Coordinator at Robert Mondavi Winery, along with some other journalists, during my most recent stay in Napa Valley. 

I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about the vineyard and the wines that come from this special place along the way. 

That is the bike tour guide in my photo on the left.  Peter is on the video. You can set up your own bike tour through the same group that we used, Napa Valley Bike Tours during your next trip to Napa Valley. 

Here is a quicktake tour of what I saw along our ride.

Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol and medium acidity with a fresh cherry flavor. It worked well with our dinner of soft chicken tacos with tomatillo salsa. Whole Foods has it for $13.99. 2010 Cantele Primitivo - Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and licorice. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the aromas and a slightly spicy, long finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I served it with barbequed and smoked pulled pork sandwiches and it was delicious. Available at Spec's for about $15. 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva - Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the a
