Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This notably cool growing season had the beneficial effect of extending “hang time,” literally giving the clusters additional time for flavor development. September brought excellent harvest conditions, with an extra surge of heat at the end of the month, and we began Oakville Cabernet on October 4th. The heat and consequent rush to harvest worked to our advantage and we finished harvesting the Oakville blocks on October 16th, a few days ahead of a late October storm. The most common themes for the vintage were low yields of small, flavorful berries and excellent flavor maturity at favorable, relatively-low sugar levels.
