Cabernet Sauvignon You Can Find Anywhere

12. Mondavi Napa Reserve Cabernet (2008)

« Prev Next » 12 of 15
Ripe and full on the nose with cocoa and mocha top notes. Plenty of gently leafy black currant fruit and a touch of pickle barrel oak. Entering the mouth with a tea-like complexity, this is a touch soft and amply endowed with tannins but at the same time it delivers notable complexity with those tea-like tannins. Plenty of spice from the oak, fairly fresh red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit and a hint of eucalyptus on the back end and through the fairly long and spicy finish that end with some medicinal black cherry notes. Not my style, but this should prove to be very popular with the more is better crowd. 88pts
