"Dry, smooth and distinguished. Shows Mondavi’s ability to get the grapes ripe in blackberries and currants, yet the fruit pulls back at the last moment, letting earthy, herbal notes take over, providing complexity and endless pleasure. The tannins are pure Oakville—sweet, soft and supple. Drink this elegant, balanced wine over the next six years. " (WE)

Winery Notes:
Densely-packed aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, chocolate mint and Provencal herbs anticipate the deep, multi-layered flavors echoed within and augmented by lush black cherry, blueberry, anise, espresso and toasty oak. Firm, ample tannins and a persistent black-fruit finish assure the potential to develop even greater complexity in the years to come.
