Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon The Estates Oakville 2018

93pts – Wine Spectator

Rich and seductive in feel, with a lovely swath of loamy-edged steeped plum and blackberry compote flavors, backed with flashes of anise and sweet bay leaf. A loamy edge extends nicely in lockstep with the fruit on the finish. Textbook Oakville Cabernet. Best from 2022 through 2034.

 

Robert Mondavi chose Oakville for the home of his winery in 1966 and planted Cabernet Sauvignon with the goal of creating wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. Most of the grapes for our Oakville District Cabernet Sauvignon come from our To Kalon Vineyard where the low-fertility, well-drained soils, aided by optimal sun exposure, lead to rich, complex flavors and impeccable fruit maturity.

Tasting Notes

Textural richness defines our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, powerful flavors of blackberry, anise, black olive, fresh tobacco, and dark chocolate mingle with sweet oak spices, nutmeg, and clove. The wine is firmly structured by velvety, age-worthy tannins.
