Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dark fruits of black cherry, plum and blackberry are layered seamlessly with sweet spice, herbal, dark earth and a touch of sweet tobacco in our 2014 vintage, and accompany the rich concentration, silky tannins and long finish that we look forward to in our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon each year. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Malbec, 0.5% Syrah
Vineyard Notes
2014 started with worrisome, drought-like conditions, and many feared a parched, dry spring as in 2013. Refreshingly, spring rains came in February and into March providing water for the soils and filling reservoirs. The wine growing season will most be remembered for the August 24th Napa earthquake that occurred just as harvest was commencing in the Napa Valley. The vines were not affected and harvest finished early, bringing in beautiful, healthy fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested into small bins and carefully sorted in our gravity-flow cellar. The clusters were gently de-stemmed directly into traditional oak tanks for cold soak, fermentation and extended maceration-a total of 22 days of wine to skin contact--maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins fleshy and supple. The new wine was drained and gently pressed into French oak barrels (17% new) for malolactic fermentation, assuring seamless integration of fruit and oak. The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over the 17 months of barrel aging.

The late Robert Mondavi's name is synonymous with Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon so it's only fitting that his namesake winery continues in that tradition with a new vintage of Cabernet that lives up to the promise of the Mondavi name on the label. The 2014 is an elegant Cab that shows layered black fruits on the palate, notes of sweet wood spice and tobacco, and soft, supple tannins that make the wine enjoyable and satisfying from the moment of release.

Here we have a very good value at 29.00. I was fortunate to get mine on sale at 23.00 which is better still. Galloni rates it a 90; in my estimate a little high. I'll give it an 88 or 89. The wine itself is a little light but pleasurable; it feels good on the tummy. Definitely to drink now as it may not age well. An excellent table wine.
