Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Wine Details

Wine Description

A dark, sumptuous beauty, the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon Vineyard boasts marvelous depth and pure texture. Hints of mocha, espresso, cloves, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of dark, pliant fruit. The has just been bottled, but it is already hugely expressive. In particular, the addition of 7% Cabernet Franc is quite noticeable in the wine's super-expressive, resonant aromatics.

    (2001 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.
