Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1987

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal composition: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot Flavor descriptors: Deep, dark color signals the wine’s depth of flavor and opulent texture. Aromas of black fruits and hints of cedar, black licorice and spicy nutmeg and clove lead to dense flavors of blackberry and black plum enhanced by elegantly powerful tannins. Polished yet powerful. Wine analysis: Total acid: .66% Final pH: 3.7 Residual sugar: 1.0% (dry) Alcohol: 15% by volume Grape Sourcing: 81% Oakville AVA, including 53% To Kalon Vineyard; 19% Stags Leap District

  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.

Another bottle for our older wines tasting and it's still awesome! I can't believe a non-reserve wine like this has stood up so well. It's right between the first and second phase of its life and it's just simply impressive, delicious and complex. - Tasted at Schreiner's Winers: The Aging Process- Library/Older Wines 5/21/10

Surprised not being a reserve wine, this stood up that long, but that's what proper cellaring will do! Interesting time as it's just entering its second phase where the fruit begins to fade to earthy, leathery character. The gamey, dirty nature is setting in, but I was shocked at how strong and ripe the fruit remains on the nose and palate! Nose of dried, stewed prunes with some bright red berries remaining and dried flower petals. Deep core of cassis and dark berries and black currant over relaxed tannins and dried floral bouquet.

Very good full medium ruby. Currant, black cherry, roast coffee, cedar, leather, tobacco, truffle and black olive on the flamboyant nose. Sappy, youthfully tight flavors of currant and tobacco leaf, with a faint gamey nuance. Very ripe and rich but a... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
