Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The wine has the sweet black cherry and dark berry fruit character that distinguishes California's finest Cabernet Sauvignon's, and its ripe fruit is supported by velvety tannins and well-integrated oak. This is a wine of excellent depth, richness, and length on the palate.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2003 Vintage) Mondavi's basic Cabernet starts out well enough with attractive aromas of ripe cherries and fairly rich oak, but its simple flavors run afoul of blunting tannins, and its fundamental fruit is lost to tongue-drying astringency. In need of some five or more years of softening, it never finds a sufficiently fruity voice to convince us that it will age into beauty.
