"A direct, focused style, with a core of steeped cherry and plum preserve flavors, liberally lined with toasted vanilla and licorice notes. Sports a pleasant tug of earth at the end of the juicy finish. Textbook Cabernet. Drink now through 2026. 95,663 cases made. -JM " (WS)

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous wine. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and licorice flesh out in a supple, easygoing Cabernet that will drink well out of the gate. The sumptuous, crowd-pleasing style is sure to find a wide and hugely appreciative audience. Moreover, it is a tremendous value. Dark cherry, spice and pretty floral notes accent the succulent, racy finish. There is so much to like. Mondavi's Napa Valley Cabernet draws from a wide range of sources across the appellation."

"The value-priced 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is well worth seeking out and is ideal for readers who feel all the wines in Napa are over-priced. This sexy, rounded effort sports a deep, inky color as well as upfront cassis and jammy blackberry fruits, medium body, sweet tannins, and terrific overall balance." (JD)
