    Distinct currant, cassis, cherry and vanilla flavors are elegant and well focused with harmonous tannins and subtle oak flavors around the edges. It's well balanced and very pretty, finishing with cassis-like flavors.

    Corks broke and then we decanted them as well. Very smooth and drinkable after 25 years. Pretty amazing.

    Only OK. Very acidic and no ripe fruit flavor remaining (given the 12% alcohol level, there was probably not much to start with). Reminiscent of a (low end) Bordeaux -- i.e. what Napa cabs would taste like if they had lousy weather...

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.
