Robert Kamen returns to Tony’s September 27
“The limited production Cabernet Sauvignon Kashmir,” wrote Robert Parker in 2010 (Wine Advocate), giving the wine a whopping “94+” points, “is a selection of Kamen’s two best barrels. It exhibits a dense character, significant structure, and copious amounts of chocolaty, black fruits intermixed with scorched earth, good underlying minerality, and a full-bodied, powerful, expressive style.”
On Thursday, September 27, Tony’s renowned waitstaff will be pouring the wine and Robert Kamen will be on hand to discuss this unique “mountain Cabernet” from Sonoma and to talk about his legacy as one of the earliest biodynamic grape growers in Northern California.
Tony Vallone will serve a tasting menu created especially for the event.

Robert visits Tony’s every year to talk wine, catch up with old friends, and to make new ones. But this year marks a special occasion in his “other life” as one of Hollywood’s leading screenwriters: his new film, Taken II, starring Liam Neeson, will be debuting worldwide a few short days later (October 10). Don’t be surprised if Robert shares an anecdote about the production of this movie, which is sure to be an international blockbuster.
Above and beyond his career as one of Hollywood’s screenwriters (Taps, The Karate Kid, The Fifth Element, Gladiator), Robert became a Sonoma pioneer when he started a winery there in the 1980s. Among the first to embrace biodynamic farming, his wines have paved the way for a generation of growers and winemakers who have shifted from commercial, chemical-laden farming practices to sustainable agriculture that better expresses the terroir, i.e., the unique combination of soil, climate, and exposure in the vineyard. While most know him for his celebrity in entertainment industry circles, he is widely revered as a leading winemaker and trailblazer by wine industry insiders and observers alike.
