(From 1994 Vintage) Nuances of spice, cedar forest and licorice lead to rich layers of cassis, boysenberry and black cherry which slowly unfold on the palate. The wine is complex with broad, muscular tannins, excellent structure and a long, velvety finish.

Wine Advocate(From 1994 Vintage)
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 1997 Vintage) Sweetened up with the lovely, decidedly creamy oak that is a Mondavi hallmark, this bright, young Cabernet displays plenty of fruity concentration and suggests raspberries and a touch of currants in both scent and taste. Its rounded, somewhat juicy flavors are surprisingly accessible now, and it would seem that no more than three or four years of age are needed to bring this one to its polished best.
Wine & Spirits(From 1997 Vintage) Simply one of the best wines in the world. On a par with the first growths of Bordeaux; capable of long term cellaring but also enjoyable now, bursting with dark berry fruit. Although packed with blackberry, cassis and spice, this wine has a beautifully pure mineral component that lifts the wine on your palate, making it seem simultaneously chewy and silky at the same time. 38% of this vintage is made with grapes from the one of the jewels of Napa mdash; the To Kalon Vineyard.
