The 2001s still rock. Deep red/chocolate color. Musty bouquet. Payoff is in the mouth. Incredibly smooth. Unusual, for a cabernet, cherry/berry fruit taste. However, make no mistake this is complex cabernet sauvignon. New sensations emerge as the wine moves through the palate. Finish is cinnamony (????). US$29.99 in 2005.

My first bottle since 3/28/06. When I last left this wine, it was asleep. It has awoken.... I think.Decanted 45 minutes. Lots of sediment evident. The color has the purple tinge on the edges. It seems like a younger wine by looks alone. The nose shows 'correct' qualities of cassis, red currant, and camphor. The palate show a flinty lushness of red fruits, cassis, and tar. There is now a hollow feel to this thats disturbing. It has no mid-palate. Finish is decent.I'm a bit dissapointed in this apparent 5 year wine. When I originally had it back in February 2005 it was a different animal altoghether. I have watched is demise.I have 6 more that will do hamburger deck duty this summer. 86/100

I think this is asleep.I had my 9th bottle over the weekend and it was untypical of itself. Somewhat dull, hidden fruit. A bit astringent. In any case I will hold my last 7 bottles for until 2007.

On track once again. Intense vibrant hue od brick with dark purple edges. Great true cassis and currant nose.On the tonque there was the Mondavi signature of balance and finesse. Great understated cassis, currant, and dark cherry cola. There is a clean smooth tannin/acid base that makes this good with food as well as on its own. A 30 second aftertaste completed the package.This is about a dozen times. I think this has emerged from its sleep and is willing to serve faithfully again.

A truly great bottle of wine. My wife and I BOTH enjoyed the powerful, yet smooth drinking cabernet. It was a little bright right out of the bottle, but settled beautifully after 30 minutes. There is a nice hint of the oak, and some depth to the finish... a grain that clung to the entire palette.

Superripe, almost port-like aromas of roasted plum, cassis, mint and smoky oak. Offers wonderful sweetness and richness in the mouth. Very long on the back end; the substantial tannins become apparent quite late and cover more of the palate. This wine's suave finish makes the above Cabernet seem almost rustic in comparison. An impressive '96.

Rich and complex yet restrained in style, with pretty coffee, currant, black cherry, spice and anise flavors that fan out nicely, this California Cabernet turns particularly elegant and polished on the long finish. Drink now through 2007.

Packed with currant, black cherry, plum, cedar and spice nuances, finishing long and complete, this Mondavi reserve is a dark, immense, deeply concentrated and sharply focused red. Best from 2002 through 2012.

Ripe, dark, dense and earthy, with a rich core of currant, mineral and spice. Shows off pretty, toasty, spicy oak too, all the while maintaining a tremendous sense of elegance and finesse. Best for 2002 through 2010.

Deep, saturated red-ruby. Lively, complex aroma dominated by blackcurrant, licorice and tobacco. Sweet and quite deep but very tightly wrapped. much more difficult to taste than it was prior to bottling. finishes with tongue-saturating tannins. Very firmly structures; today, the wine's acids and tannins have not yet harmonized. A drier, serious style of cabernet, in need of bottle aging.

Supple, complex and harmonious with a broad range of currant, anise, coffee, cedar and spice flavors. Picks up light toasty oak notes finishing with a smooth texture.

Contains 67% To-Kalon Vineyard fruit. Still a baby. Closed, brooding, very deep, very dry. Fabulous cassis fruit, a huge wine. Lots of delicious, sweet new oak. Superbly balanced, impressive. Drinkable now, but best 2010–2020.

Winemaker's Notes:

Alcohol Percentage: 14.1 % Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

Tasting Notes:

Deep, intense dark fruit character, with mineral, violet and earthy truffle complexity, distinguishes our 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. The wine is powerful yet elegant, with beautifully integrated firm, muscular tannins, promising long aging potential. Selected from our finest vineyards, our Napa Valley Reserve captures the complex flavor profile and exquisite balance of the Oakville bench region. The wine was handcrafted in our new To Kalon Fermentation Cellar with traditional techniques, including hand-sorting of the clusters, gravity-flow movement of the must and wine, and fermentation in a traditional oak tank. Sixteen months of aging in new French oak château barrels added vanilla and toasty oak accents. To retain fully this wine’s enormous depth, texture and length of finish, we bottled it without fining or filtration. Deep, intense dark fruit character with mineral, violet and earthy truffle complexity. Firm, integrated tannins for aging, persistent finish. Powerful, yet extremely elegant
