($125) Good saturated ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of currant, black cherry, espresso, milk chocolate and flowers; a real essence of Napa Valley cabernet. Enters the palate like silk, then builds slowly toward the back, offering a lovely light touch and plenty of inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes with substantial but very fine tannins that reach the incisors, and lingering perfume.

A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a wine exhibiting notes of creme de cassis, subtle and unobtrusive oak, medium to full body, impeccable balance and everything synchronized into a lush, opulent wine that finished with 14.5% alcohol. It is not the most complex Mondavi Reserve, but it is a very satisfying, highbrow wine that offers plenty of pleasure both hedonistically and intellectually. It should drink well for another 15 years, and it may surprise me with more nuances and subtleties than it now suggests.

Drinking harmoniously at this point, with none of its elements sticking out or overpowering the others. Fruit is leaning toward the darker end of the spectrum. Tannins are smooth and fully integrated. Medium to heavy palate weight and a 25-second finish. Ready now; drink through 2020.

One of best wines I have tasted. Big bold flavors but goes down like velvet.

This is getting very interesting as the way is maturing...this full body, dark, dense and full flavor CS. an underrated vintage but this bottling is a great value. Its drinking nicely and getting the complexity you migh expect from this blockbuster wine. From now to next 7-9 yrs it will be in peak drinking condition. Enjoy it!

Best wine (for me) in a vertical tasting from 99-08. This was the first vintage they did not include any Merlot or Malbec; and the last vintage before Constellation bought Mondavi in Nov 2004. Nose like fresh pressed blackcurrant juice with a dusting of cocoa and vanilla at first, deepened into crushed blackberries and cassis with a hint of thyme. Palate is just gorgeous - pure black fruits, flavors still primary but everything in perfect balance, polished tannins, expansive and powerful, long and promising. Puts many more expensive Napa Cabs to shame.
