Turning 18 years old very gracefully right about now, with a powerful acidic spine, suggesting it could live on much longer. Already displaying a complex nose of fruits, flowers, iodine, and red fruits. Finishes well with good persistence. Good piece of history here, though more for the acid hounds, not for hedonists.

Some bricking on the edges and a medium garnet color. The nose is a bit subdued. The palate has tremendous lead pencil shavings, dried cassis, red cherries, and tar. Somewhat 2 dimensional. The acid level may be hangig in where the fruit may be coming up short. Very Paulliacian in style. This should have been drunk up by age 10 Still all in all a nice drink of wine. 88

I had the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (97 points) a half-dozen times this year, and it may be the finest Cabernet ever from Mondavi. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1994 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

At the winery, we gently destemmed the grapes and fermented the must with a combination of native and cultured yeasts for greater complexity. Extended skin contact naturally softened the grape tannins and enhanced varietal intensity. After pressing, the wine underwent a long malo-lactic fermentation – with native and cultured malo-lactic bacteria – for softness and depth on the palate. During more than 19 months in new chateau-style, French oak barrels, the wine was racked six times and lightly fined with fresh egg whites. These gentle winemaking techniques allowed us to bottle this Cabernet without filtration to fully retain its complex flavors and long aging potential. Skin contact: 30 days, time in French oak chateau barrels: 19 months (100% new oak).

Tasting Notes:

Our 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has become one of the most highly acclaimed vintages we have produced. The wine has exceptional richness and intensity, with layers upon layers of deep black cherry, currant, earth, spices and black olive. Nuances of vanilla and spicy oak from 100% new barrels linger on the finish. It is an extremely silky, opulent wine with impeccable balance, reflecting the outstanding 1994 vintage.
