    April 1, 2013 - 100% OLD OLD vine SB. Always a favorite...probably my most favorite SB...and imo Mondavi's best wine made. Brilliant metallic gold color....exotic nose of tropical fruit, citrus blossoms, crushed shale, dried honey, smoked pineapple, florals galor! Come on...domestic SB can't age?!? This thing is rich and alive...exotic with tropical fruits, as well as crisp apple, lemon and ginger. Has a killer distinct smoky, petroly thing going on....something you always find in these as well as the Reserve FB, but no other producers that I've ever had.....total To Kalon SB TERROIR! Crushed chalky minerals, vanilla hazelnut butter cream to it as well. Plenty fresh, and plenty complexities here.....one of the BEST bottles of these older I Blocks I've ever had!
