(93% from To-Kalon fruit): Good bright medium ruby. Aromatic, essence-of-Oakville nose offers black raspberry, cassis, loam, spices, licorice and menthol. Lush but fresh and delineated, with a medicinal minty quality to the cassis and graphite flavors. A bit tough for a 2008, but there's also good underlying sweetness and length here. The wine's serious tannic structure calls for a few years of patience. Will this fatten up in bottle?

I approached this bottle with trepidation as I am not a huge fan of the Mondavi camp. It was given as a gift and has been sitting for about two years. I opened this on Saturday night with some friends and we were all amazed at what a solid wine this was. The nose was bursting with vanilla and dark fruit, while the mouthfeel was full and balanced. The finish was smooth and at least 30 seconds. I will be on the hunt for more of this one!!
