Editorial Reviews for Mondavi Napa Reserve Cabernet
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
Tropical fruit, not too oaky. Fresh with just a touch of creaminess. Nothing overdone.
simply loved this wine. Guess it can easily stay in my cellar for another 5 years. Right?
I guess, I already reviewed this, but can not find my old comment. Loved it, but not brilliant.
The wine was flavorful. It seemed as if another year or two would be best.
Light cranberry color in the glass, aromas of spice and cherries. Flavors of cranberry, plum and, once it opens up, cherries. Tart and spicy with moderate tannins. A pretty good average Cab.
External Reviews for Mondavi Napa Reserve Cabernet
Vibrant flavors in an approachable style that showcases luscious layers of berry, raspberry and spice with light oak nuances.
Tight and flinty, with zingy acidity and a tight mix of citrus, green apple and honeydew melon. Full-bodied, elegant and stylish. Should benefit from cellaring. Drink now through 2012.
Young and vibrant, with a focused core of spicy pear, citrus and lemon flavors, picking up a trace of toasty oak on the finish. Impressive for its length.
Nutty and toasty, but balanced by melon, lemon and green-apple fruit. Tangy, with a mineral-herb element that keeps it interesting through the chalky finish.
A rich melange of flavors and supple balance with notes of cassis, ripe berry, plum, spices, violets and chocolate.
A lively wine with brilliant fruit laid over supple tannins. The center is delicious, with spreading layers of black plum fruit, edged by a delicate chocolate/coffee aura. Quite a tasty wine.
Blackberry and black pepper flavors fill this fruity merlot. It ends softly, on a note of bittersweet chocolate; ready for beef brisket.
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 crme brulee.
This vivid and crisp Chardonnay draws orchard aromas of fresh Bosc pears and Gala apples against a backdrop of fleshy stone fruits and pineapple. A stripe of exotic spices, including notes of nutmeg and cinnamon, gives way to subtle aromas of panna cotta and warm hazelnuts. Persistent on the palate, this wine gracefully balances the toast of its well-integrated oak with bright fresh fruit flavors for a round, lingering finish that is typical of the Carneros terroir.
