Editorial Reviews for Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Lightly Bin-Soiled Label

Smells like wood and candy at first with notes of smoke and leather adding some detail. Air brings a brightness to the nose that recalls candied citrus peel as well as a lovely floral top note. The bouquet is fresh, complex and evolving In the mouth this feels a little compressed with a bit of obvious wood still in evidence but the bitter cherry fruit remains assertive through the palate and leads to a nice finish with notes of slightly under-ripe fruit that remains fresh, vibrant and detailed, this will not blow anybody away but rather seduces you with it’s subtle detail. 90pts

Winemaker's Notes:

At the winery, the grapes underwent a gentle destemming and partial crushing. We then fermented the must (juice and skins) in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 86ºF. Four weeks of skin contact enhanced varietal complexity, while naturally softening the grape tannins. The wine was racked unfiltered to 60-gallon French oak chateau barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation and aging. We barrel-aged the wine for eighteen months to mature flavors and weave spicy oak nuances through the wine. To complement the highly-extracted flavors of this vintage, we selected 95% new French oak barrels. Wine analysis: 0.58% total acid, 3.60pH, and 13.4% alcohol, by volume

Tasting Notes:

Gracefully revealing the complexity of age, our 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve unfolds with layers of rich, highly extracted dark fruit flavors. The wine has elegance and balance from the outstanding 1991 vintage, with a firm tannin structure that assures continued development in the bottle. The perfectly articulated cassis, berry and spice character captures the personality of our To Kalon Vineyard in Napa Valley’s Oakville region. The 1991 vintage celebrates our 25th anniversary, marking an important benchmark for Robert Mondavi Winery.
