2010 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Winemaker's Notes

An endlessly generous, layered and complex expression of To Kalon terroir: The clean blackberry entry opens up into a delicious mouthful of wild berries, black olive, sage and cassis framed by warm mocha, toasted bread and a touch of granitic minerality. Fine, well-integrated tannins and deep, rich flavors that linger… and linger

    "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve boasts stunning depth, power and richness. Exotic, powerful and structured, the 2010 emerges from the glass with masses of dark fruit, smoke, licorice, menthol, plums and cloves. Today, the 2010 Reserve is naturally quite primary, but all the ingredients are there for it to develop into a spectacular wine. Readers will need to give the 2010 a few years to soften, as the tannins are a bit imposing at this stage, despite the wine's considerable appeal today. An exotic melange of blackberries, blueberries, menthol, tar and licorice round out the sumptuous finish. What a gorgeous wine this is...96" Antonio Galloni 11/13 "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dense purple color, more tannin, structure and spice, terrific richness and plenty of black currant, vanillin and loamy soil characteristics. Given past track records, this full-bodied, impressive Reserve should easily age for 25-35 years...95" WA 10/13

    (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.
