The Family Reserve label is the hallmark of our elegant and rich wines produced from grapes harvested from specific vineyard blocks located in our prime vineyards. Our Generations is a tribute to three generations of winemaking by the Mondavi Family while the Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is our Flagship cabernet produced with pride since 1944.
Wine & Spirits(2006 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. An impressively cool and brisk cabernet, predominantly from Charles Krug's estate vineyards in Yountville, this starts out on black plum and grows increasingly more generous with air. The wine expands into deep purple-black fruit and potent tannins, which bring out some warmth to balance the fresh, minty aspects of the flavor. Decant a bottle for lamb chops.
