  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.

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. ~ The Winery ~

Our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from cool-climate Central Coast grapes and has been blended with Syrah and small amounts of Merlot Malbec and Petite Sirah. The wine has the sweet black cherry and dark berry fruit character that distinguishes Californias finest Cabernet Sauvignons and its ripe fruit is supported by velvety tannins and well-integrated oak. This is a wine of excellent depth richness and length on the palate. Enjoy with a wide array of dishes from standing rib roasts grilled steak and roast duck to spare ribs lasagna and flavorful hard cheeses.
