Editorial Reviews for Mondavi Napa Reserve Cabernet
A touch dull on the nose with aromas of dried dates, apricots and a little vanilla and spice. This is polished and smooth, with some nice tannins and decent acidity, there's even some nice black currant, plum, and chocolate pudding flavors here, but they are very subtle. The fruit pops a bit with some strawberry notes on the back end, along with subtle herb notes, but this sort of evaporates on the finish. Nothing wrong here, this will offend no one but at the same time there is little to set it apart other than the price. 80pts
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
Quite dark in the glass. Big, oaky, volatile nose. Quite pleasant on the tip of the tongue--some berry, cassis fruit, but not overwhelming. As the wine moves over the palate the tannins become apparent creating the obvious puckery sensation, but also some hint of cinnamon or mint. Noticeable oak on the back of the throat..
This cab is wonderful, smooth and velvety with rich taste. I highly recommend this wine, by far one of the best cab's out there.
Fruity tooty! Just how I like it...great boysenberry and blackberry notes with hints of black pepper on the finish. Smooth Sally...
I am more of a white wine fan so I do not enjoy this wine by itself. However, it makes a great tasting sangria!!
I like this Merlot. A good wine for the price.
it has a bit of a bite to it it really needs to breathe for a while
Delicious. Oaky. Heavy. Drank At Marriott Ko Olina
External Reviews for Mondavi Napa Reserve Cabernet
Rich and concentrated in blackberry essence, black currant and mocha, this has smooth tannins and a long, complex, dry finish. Delicacy, not to mention ageability, is somewhat compromised by the heat of high alcohol, but still, its a flashy effort t... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
Marked by a citrus-infused mix of apple and pear flavors. This medium- to full-bodied white is clean and vibrant. Drink now through 2014.
The 2009 Chardonnay is an attractive, mid-weight wine with good depth and plenty of varietal character. This won’t win any awards for complexity or excitement, but it is well made and very reasonably priced. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2015.
Good bright ruby. Complex nose offers plum, black cherry, graphite, flowers, menthol and cedary oak. Nicely fleshy but not at all muscular, with a juicy, penetrating character to the cassis, licorice, cedar and spice flavors. An elegantly styled c... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 750ml
Dry, smooth and distinguished. Shows Mondavi's ability to get the grapes ripe in blackberries and currants, yet the fruit pulls back at the last moment, letting earthy, herbal notes take over, providing complexity and endless pleasure. The tannins ar... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 750ml
Ripeness was no problem in this fruit-forward wine. It's exuberant in cherries, blackberries, plums and cranberries, with a little dusting of oak, and the finish is totally dry. Gives some real upscale Cab experience, at a decent price.
There's some nice, plush blackberry and cherry fruit in this dry wine. It will match well with foods that spar with its crisp acids and edge of tannins.
