91 Points Wine Enthusiast 'Editors Choice': Textbook Napa Cab. It's dry, smoothly tannic and subtle, with blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate flavors nicely intrigued with herbs, tobacco and cedar. Just delicious now and for the next few years.
Deep, dense and concentrated, the flavors echo intense aromas of blueberry, bramble and cassis intermingled with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet, toasty oak. Bold, yet supple on the palate, the dark, richlyfruity flavors are balanced by a bright acidity and long finish.
Wine Maker Notes
At Robert Mondavi Winery, the winegrowing team believes that great wine is a reflection of its origin. The wines made at Robert Mondavi Winery express the terroir of the two vineyard properties that constitute our Napa Valley vineyard holdings. The winegrowing team harvests a majority of the fruit for its wines from these vineyards and each lies in a different sub-appellation, providing the winery a wide variety of soils and climatic conditions for planting different grape varieties.
