Mondavi Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
90 points Wine Enthusiast: What's so nice about this wine is that it has full-throttle Chard personality while keeping everything so balanced that it's also a versatile food wine. You can't say that about a lot of Chardonnays. Mainly it's the acidity, but also the complex, subtle interplay of fruit and oak. A very nice job. (Sep 2007)
I had this wine at Maggiano's in Philly on a recommendation and I thought it was wonderful. I'm normally not a fan of really full-bodied wines, but this had a great taste to it, a wonderful aroma, and went very well with my lasagna.
Earthy and deep with black fruit aromas. Palate is full bodied with loads of ripe fruit, some nice spice and warm tannins.
A crowd pleaser. This wine doesn't try to do any fancy tricks but is very enjoyable. Tannins are pretty well balanced now, so I'm not sure how this wine would stand up to aging.
Deep clear red/purple in color. Excellent nose (Lush fruit with hints of chocolate). Sits calmly on the palette and tastes of chocolate, cassias, and balanced tannins with a smooth finish
Outstanding! One of the best wines I've tried. Smooth, velvety, lingures and warms. Great aromas, you can taste the berries and spices. Just a great, great wine.
Flavors of blackberry and currents with a medium length finish.
leather, black cherry, and oak scent sweet berry with a bit of cedar
External Reviews for Mondavi Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby purple. Moderately full- bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly ex- tracted and oaked. Quite tannic. Black fruits, dusty cherries, dark chocolate. Intensely concentrated, with a rush of deep black fruit and powerful structural elements. Wood is nicely integerated. Lingering, mouth drying finish. A classic style.
Minty, with pronounced currant and bayleaf flavors that are intense, if rustic and firmly tannic. Drink now through 2005.
92 points - Wine Spectator "Sleek, elegant and polished A refined yet rich and complex effort, with a mix of mint, currant, bay leaf, sage and dusty berry flavors Firms up on the finish, where the tannins are firm yet supple and integrated" James Laube
Dark, ripe and intense, with a tight core of currant, mineral, earth and spice flavors. Turns dry and austere on the finish, where the flavors show more earthy qualities. Best to cellar into 1999.
From one of Californiarsquo;s best-known wineries comes this supple, complex and harmonious reserve bottling, sporting a broad range of currant, anise, coffee, cedar and spice flavors, picking up light toasty oak notes and finishing with a smooth texture. Delicious now, but itrsquo;s worthy of cellaring, too.

Good full ruby. Cool, complex aromas of black fruits, bitter chocolate, violet, licorice and espresso. Sweet and lush but also quite vibrant, with captivating flavors of cassis, minerals and mint. Finishes with big, horizontal tannins and excellent persistence. More suave and harmonious today than the young 2002.
Food Pairings for Mondavi Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon
An inky wine that follows through on the promise of its deep, dark color to deliver intensity in every way. In the nose, ripe aromas of wild blueberry merge with a hint of black olive and notes of spice and vanilla derived from aging in new French oak. In the mouth, the powerful tannins are chewy and generous, and beautifully balanced by the wine’s equally dense flavors of black fruits—blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry and crème de cassis. Vibrant and alive with fresh acidity, the 2005 Reserve is a powerful wine that carries its considerable muscle with elegance and style Deep, dark color signals the wine’s intensity. Aromas of wild blueberry contain hints of black olive and spicy vanilla from oak aging. Dense flavors of blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry are enhanced by elegantly powerful tannins and vibrant acidity
