Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2019

92 pts – James Suckling

Lovely cabernet notes of bell pepper, blackcurrants, blackberry leaves and cassis, together with some cocoa powder. I like the freshness. Medium body and creamy, powdery tannins. Juicy and extremely drinkable. 80% cabernet sauvignon, the rest merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot and some malbec. Drink from 2023.

91 pts – Wine Spectator

A solid, forthright Cabernet, with cedar and warm stone notes framing the core of gently steeped black currant and blackberry fruit. Savory and loam accents flash through the finish.

 

Fruit for our Napa Valley Cabernet comes from sub-appellations throughout the Valley, each of which have been specially chosen for their contributions to a combined blend that is a true reflection of place, a gorgeous expression of Napa Valley.  Nearly half of this year’s blend is sourced from the deep, well-drained soils of Oakville, which give us gorgeously dark, supple wines framed by fine tannin. Complementary portions of the blend come from Stags Leap District, Oak Knoll, Yountville and Rutherford.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of cherry, purple plum, sage, sandalwood, mint, and vanilla bean. Expressive and layered with rich, sweet black fruit, and warm oak spice. Lush texture, bright acidity, fine tannins, vibrant fruit notes.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes
