Robert Mondavi Oakville District Napa Valley
Description: Winemaker's Notes
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot, & 2% Malbec An intriguingly deep color leads to highly fragrant aromas and fleshy dark fruits, sage, bay leaf, and a gentle touch of black pepper spice on the palate with a savory finish that all work seamlessly together. The lively freshness and good structure came easily with the cooler season and patient barrel maturation provided exactly what we love about Oakville cabernet sauvignon: its dense, rich mouth feel, complexity and long finish.

Critical Acclaim
V 90pts
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Mondavi's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is very pretty, especially within the context of the year. Plums, leather, tobacco, cedar, mint and pine are all bright and nicely focused in the glass. A wine of balance and energy, the 2011 impresses for its energy and sense of harmony. The tannins are a bit firm, but that just serves to support the fruit. Hints of sweet tobacco, savory herbs and cedar linger on the long, nuanced finish. This is a fabulous showing in a very challenging year."
