    Very mellow for a Cabernet. Soft tannins with notes of oak, vanilla and blackberry. Smooth with a long finish.

    Core of soft and juicy berries with a hint of tartness. Notes of oak and almost a buttery finish.

    Winemaker's Notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, expressive aromas and flavors of berry and black currant with nuances of mocha, violets and spice. The fruit envelops an elegant structure with firm, velvety tannins and excellent length. The wine's personality comes from the soils and climates of vineyards located in the geographic center of Napa Valley. Fermentation with both native and cultured yeast strains gives layers of nuance to the wine, and extended skin contact intensifies varietal complexity and softens tannins. The wine was aged in French oak château barrels and bottled it without filtration to capture the full flavor profile and lush texture.

    This was a very good, full bodied wine. It had a dark, rich character to it, which was very enjoyable. Definitely a wine I'd have again, given the chance.

    This is a great wine. I have 2002 Oakville waiting, on the cork, for a special occasion....but this one would suffice as a suitable substitute if necessary. Fine wine indeed.

    Mondavi does a great job each year with the winery Cabernet.
