"A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet at its best: Remarkably rich and concentrated. Tantalizing entry - almost sweet with blackberry essence, it evolves into a plush, mouth filling compote of black fruit, beautifully integrated with woodsy and mineral notes, mocha, tobacco and clove. For all its volume the delivery is surprisingly fresh and supple, with a long, mocha-infused finish." - Winery
"With its legacy of more than 40 years of fine winemaking, the Robert Mondavi Winery is a shining symbol of Napa Valley. Founded in 1966, the winery's beautiful architecture by Cliff May reflects the missions of early California history. When you come to visit us at Robert Mondavi Winery, you will experience our commitment to education and the arts, pursuit of innovation, and dedication to producing fine wines that stand in the company of the great wines of the world. Come learn about the history of winemaking in California and share in our philosophy of integrating wine, food and the arts into gracious living. Sadly, Mr. Mondavi passed away in the spring of 2008 at the age of 95. He leaves a true legacy of his deeds. Many of us would not be in the wine business nor would wine, especially California/Napa Valley wines, be so appreciated by consumers world wide!" - Distributor
