A strong showing for this offering from Mondavi, 1986 was a transitional year for the Mondavi philosophy of Cabernet Sauvignon winemaking. The unfiltered school of winemaking, which ended in 1974, resumed in 1987, yet had not taken full hold in 1986.... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1986 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 1500ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Hand-harvested in cool morning hours Fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak tanks 29 days of maceration (skin contact) to soften tannins Barrel-to-barrel racking to develop flavors 14 months of aging in French oak château barrels (20% new oak). Varietal composition 85 % Cabernet Sauvignon 5 % Cabernet Franc 5 % Merlot 2% Petit Verdot 2% Malbec 1% Syrah Flavor descriptors: Deep and dense with perfumed aromas and delicious flavors of blackberry, cassis, black olive and dark chocolate. Smooth and supple, with fine-grained tannins, good acid and a lengthy finish. Wine analysis: Total acid: 0.65 % Final pH: 3.57 Residual sugar: 0.71% Alcohol: 15%
