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 ~

External Reviews for R Mondavi Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
