    A superstar, amazingly pure, rich and explosive, with dense currant, blackberry and mocha flavors, revealing a persistent aftertaste.-Robert Mondavi vertical (December 2015). Drink now through 2022. 20,000 cases made.

    Good bright ruby. Complex nose combines currant, black raspberry, tobacco, bitter chocolate and violet, all lifted by enticing sweet oak tones. Dense and sweet but fresh. This has a creamy texture I miss in most of this winery's other '99 reds, without any loss of precision.

    The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a deep ruby/purple color, notes of black currants, minerals, and toasty oak, and an elegant, restrained, aromatic profile. In the mouth, there is high tannin, medium body, and excellent concentration.

    Very deep crimson and such deep flavours it is almost br?l?e. Then more of those tough tannins and a slightly hot finish. Far from resolved yet.

    Christmas dinner - gave it a couple of hours to open up and it was worth it. Serious wine with lots of complex notes and a very long finish. A little rough on the edges and it definitely needs time but it was a perfect companion to a beef tenderloin.

    First time we had this wine it seemed to vegetal, green. Our pallets are changing a bit and this time it was more acceptable. In general, our group really liked this wine. We have another 12 so it will be interesting to see how it evolves.

    Great color with a reticent but strong nose of licorice and toast. The wine's finish is surprisingly short.

    Jammy, well-balanced, only moderately tannic. A great pairing for a nice steak, or even something lighter.

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.
