Ripe and jammy on the nose with a nice base of well judged mocha, vanilla oak and a dusting of clove over soft, slightly minty black currant fruit. This is rather bright on entry with rich ripe prune and blackberry flavors supported by vibrant acidity, almost too vibrant in that it lends a citrus cast to the palate., though it does make this easy to drink. The ripeness eventually breaks through the acid barrier and the wood adds its weight on the backend before this fades on a modest, slightly dry and woody finish. Still it easy to drink and the freshness combined with the powerful fruit makes for an attractive package, though it tastes a bit like black currant jam on toast with cinnamon sugar. 89pts

More red than purple in the glass. Fairly big nose reporting oak and berry. Quite a big blast of berry fruit on introduction to the tongue, but it really does not take over. More earthy things happen as the wine passes over the tongue. Then there is a bit of woodiness at the back of the palate. Tannin and acid from the back of the palate and the tongue suggest more years of aging would be rewarded. US$34.79 at Costco in Chino Hills in 2013.

A nicely balanced cab with a deep body that opens nicely with time.

Fresh and youthful with lively acidity and abundant fruit. Aromas of zesty citrus and green apple mingle with a hint of coconut and subtle oak. Richly layered flavors unfold in the mouth: lemon, green apple, pear, pineapple and creme brulee.

The elder son of Peter and Blanche Mondavi, Marc Mondavi was born in 1954 and caught the family winemaking bug early in life, holding his first official winery position at age 10.

Bright red-ruby. Reticent nose offers cassis, spices and chocolatey oak, plus a touch of minerality. A juicy, spicy midweight with good intensity and spicy/herbal lift to its cool cassis and blackberry flavors. Finishes with substantial fine tannins and very good length. Plenty of definition and energy here: this is excellent for a wine made in large volume. Lots of elegance in this Cabernet. It's dry, full bodied and rich in tannins, with a good depth of black currants and sweet, toasty oak. Won't age, but who cares: Pop the cork and drink it now. Graceful and elegant, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, red berry, mineral and cedar notes. Easy-drinking and pleasant. Drink now through 2016. 51,807 cases made. -JL

Robert Mondavi often said that wine should be restrained - should whisper, not shout. In that tradition, we've created a Chardonnay of remarkable freshness and vibrant purity of fruit - tropical, lively citrus, fresh pear and honeydew melon - lifted by buoyant natural acidity. Well-integrated oak supports the assemblage of fruity flavors from the vineyard with hints of roasted hazelnut, crème brûlée and smoke followed by a long, creamy finish. - WineryVarietal composition:97% Chardonnay3% Sauvignon BlancTotal acid: 6.7 g/LFinal pH: 3.4Residual Sugar: 0.57 g/LAlcohol: 13.5% by volume

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.

Bright, deep red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of cassis, black cherry, graphite, licorice, menthol and bitter chocolate. Suave, sweet and concentrated if a bit youthfully aggressive and medicinal in the early going. But this has excellent energy and intensity, and classic Oakville character. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely rising perfume.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes Purpur mit rubinem Rand. Amarenakirschen und getrocknete Pflaumen in der Amarone-Artigen Nase, Nussschokolade und Pain d’Epice dahinter. Kompakter Gaumenfluss mit pelzigen Tanninen und marmeladigem Extrakt, noch etwas Flaschenreife verlangend, fleischige Mitte, Blaubeeren und Wachholder, gute Balance zwischen Terroirwürze und Fruchtsüsse, pflaumig und viel Stoff bis ins mineralische Finale.
