(92% To Kalon fruit) Deep, bright ruby. Very ripe, nuanced nose and palate offer cassis, minerals, graphite and licorice, plus a complicating note of tarry oak. Sweet, dense and rich, with classic Oakville cabernet flavors; strongly mineral- and soil-driven. Offers a lovely combination of fat, chewiness and sheer power. Finish with a mouthful of sweet tannins and excellent structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. This has turned out very well and should ultimately surpass the 2006.

The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive.

A wonderful expression of stylish Cabernet that's ripe, fleshy and complex, highlighting ripe currant, wild berry and blueberry, with touches of cedar and cigar box. The flavors gain traction on the finish.

Surprisingly restrained and Bordeaux-like for an '07 Napa cab. Layers of flavor and a long finish.

A full bodied, robust wine. Red currants, graphite, and a hint of oak. What keeps me from rating this wine higher is the hot finish. I detected it before I noticed that it had 16% alcohol.

Classic Mondavi cabernet, although I thought the 2006 was better. A complex wine with strong aromas of ripe currant and a hint of smoke. The tannins are firm, but not quite as firm as expected after 5 years. A wine that flirts with greatness.

Wonderful wine. Big mouth feel with nice tannins. Then turns into a long velvet finish.

The winery is located in Oakville, at the center of Napa Valley. The Mondavi family is well known for its dedication to research and experimentation in winemaking, as well as for helping establish the modern-day wine business in the post-Prohibition era. Some of Mondavi's innovations include the introduction of cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks and the use of French oak barrels in the late 1960s. Furthermore, Mondavi's technological innovations to improve the quality of wine and its focus on natural farming techniques have made a fundamental impact on the industry as a whole.

The Reserve wines are made from selected vineyard fruit that benefits from cellar aging. The Limited Availability Wines are unique varietal expressions (or blends) whose fruit is sourced from venerable vineyards throughout the Napa Valley and Carneros.
