International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 168

(71% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cabernet franc, 11% petit verdot and 4% merlot; this is 92% from estate vines on Pritchard Hill, the highest percentage to date): Dark red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blueberry and flowers. Lush, silky and fine-grained, with complex flavors of dark berries and graphite minerality complicated by sweet oak and piquant notes of rose petal and green apple. At once powerful and suave on the long back end, finishing with firm tannins and lingering minerality. I retasted the 2009 next to this wine with Tim Mondavi and although the '09 is a remarkably rich wine (I rated it 93 again), the 2010 is more vibrant and delineated. "The 2010 is more nuanced by virtue of its cool season," noted Mondavi. "Its delicacy and nerve are due to the cool vintage." Mondavi does what he describes as "more of a Burgundy elevage ," using 75% oak fermenters (and the rest concrete) to get more breadth, suppler tannins and complex aromas in his wine, with just a light stirring of the lees below the cap.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 209

This has been an impressive, serious wine since the debut vintage, and Tim Mondavi's estate high on Pritchard Hill has fashioned a 2010 blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Gorgeously ripe, intricate and nuanced, with aromas of spring flowers and red and black fruits, a stunning texture, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and undeniable elegance and finesse, this complex beauty cascades over the palate without a hard edge to be found. It is a tribute to Mondavi-s long resume of skillful winemaking. Black currants, blueberries and a touch of raspberries are all compelling and persistent. Drink this gorgeous Napa red now and over the next 15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

An enticing, graceful style, this achieves a deft balance and refined dark berry, cedar and black licorice notes that linger on the finish as the tannins gain traction and grip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot.
