(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!!

About This Producer


Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 and for decades has produced quality California wines that represent New World innovation on a global scale. 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. For over 20 years Mondavi has been a leader in environmental responsibility, promoting sustainable farming and conservation.

The Robert Mondavi Winery produces wine in four categories: Napa Valley Wines, District Wines, Reserve Wines, and Limited Availability Wines. The Napa Valley wines are made from fruit blended across the region, whereas the District wines reflect the terroir of a particular appellation within the Valley. 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.
