(includes 9% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot; almost entirely from To-Kalon fruit): Good ruby-red. Very pure aromas of cassis, black cherry and minerals. Plush, creamy and sweet, with dense flavors of crushed dark berries and minerals. More open-knit than the 2008 cabernets I tasted here, and generous for a cool-year wine. Finishes with substantial fine-grained tannins and palate-staining persistence. A lovely expression of the Oakville Bench. Winemaker Genevieve Janssens noted that this blend was made entirely from fruit picked before the big rain but added that the 2008 version (which I was not able to taste) has a larger tannic structure.

Mondavi's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sumptuous and beautiful. Plums, mocha, cloves and pencil shavings are all woven together in this gorgeous, large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are in the right place. Silky, nuanced tannins frame the voluptuous, caressing finish. A wine of centeredness and gorgeous precision, the 2009 is a true standout. The tannins need a few years to soften, but once that starts to happen, the 2009 should enjoy a long life. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
