Product Description

Winemaker's Notes: "Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon epitomizes the rich character and soft, approachable tannins of the vintage. With the season's long "hang time" the small berries reached the desired state of ripeness where the tannins become very soft and supple. Even in its youth, this Reserve wine has tremendous fruit expression, depth, and a velvety texture. The outstanding natural balance, enhanced by gentle vinification, promises great aging potential. Filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms, accompanied by a gratin of potatoes with white truffle oil, is an excellent pairing. It is also elegant served with a cheese course, such as aged Gouda with toasted almonds."

Vinous, Antonio Galloni: 93 Points:
 "Very good deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of crystallized red berries, cassis, graphite and grilled nuts. Lush, sweet and minerally; already displays compelling inner-mouth complexity and superb delineation. Youthful fruit flavors show less of the meaty quality that characterized some recent vintages of this wine. Very strong underlying backbone. The wine's lovely sweetness carries through to the very long finish, which features dusty, even tannins."

Wine Spectator: 91 Points: "Very tight nose, with blackberry, coffee and cocoa notes, this is a big wine that shows great intensity and depth. Quite closed now, the dark profile keeps its cards close to the vest. One thing for sure: this is definitely one for the cellar. The finish is lengthy, with brisk tannins as well as espresso and bitter-chocolate notes. Hold for eight to ten years; this wine should keep til 2020."
