"Supple, elegant, and well-balanced" says a well known wine publication. All of that is a given, it is the Mondavi style. Wine was well structured, well balanced, but had a hard time picking up any definitive fruit aromas. Tends a slight bit more toward the earthy side. The foundation (i.e. the Mondavi style) is there for a great cab, but this one doesn't quite get there.

Drank the 06 Napa Cab and 04 Napa Merlot with Tisa and Gunther. The 06 Cab is drinking very well, good fruit from start to finish, the merlot had less flavor but was very soft. Color and weight of each wine was very good.

Big Bold Cab for the 20 dollar range. Tannins need to soften but went well with the ribeyes.

Big with massive level of tannin. Decent bouquet but still quite closed. Medium finish. Need some aging for tannin to soften and allow its sweet fruits to appear. Could potentially be a bargain in few years.

Decanted for 2 hours+. Never really opened. Seems much more closed than 2005 at the same age. Nose is restrained and palate exhibits dark plum and black cherry with hint of cedar. Full bodied and tannic. Out of balance for now. Definately will be better as it ages.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
