Great wine! Intensely concentrated nose of stewed dark berries with big toasty notes. It's an oakey, ripe fruit wine. Follows suit on the palate. Great ripe concentrated fruit and laced throughout with nice oak and hints of vanilla. Drinking very well right now and might even continue to evolve for some time. I intend to get more.

No detailed notes but second time with this bottle and once again I'm very impressed. Once of the best values in cali cabernet. Very classy, black currants and floral perfume. The palate was elegant and smooth with a long finish. I wish I had more or at least the time to have really sat with this to get a better tasting note. I was too happy drinking this wine and admiring its elegance.

A lot a fruit for the money. Ripe fruit nose with a hint of tobacco. Good balance with peppery finish.

Wow, a wonderfully powerful little gem. Velevety start, and a little delicate but a strong finish tells me this wine will be awesome in 5 years.

Great nose. Very robust. First taste is smooth yet bold enough to linger. Nice tannin bite on the tongue, but not overpowering. Aftertaste is present and stays with you for a few moments. A smooth, satisfying cab.

This guy is a brute at Christmas 2009. Huge tannin and alcohol listed at 15%. Probably will soften with bottle age but will also lose fruit. Match with big cheeses or meats with fat content (prime rib, rib eye steak, lamb chops).

Sleek, elegant and polished. A refined yet rich and complex effort, with a mix of mint, currant, bay leaf, sage and dusty berry flavors. Firms up on the finish, where the tannins are firm yet supple and integrated. Best from 2009 through 2015.

Weaves together a complex array of ripe, rich currant, anise, smoky oak and black cherry. Dense, concentrated and persistent, with great depth and focus, ending with an amazingly long, richly flavored finish. Best from 2008 through 2018.

Good full ruby. Explosive aromas of blackberry, blueberry, minerals and tobacco. Deep, brooding cabernet with terrific sweetness of fruit and depth. Complicating mineral and tobacco notes. Finishes with huge tannins that avoid hardness. Offers very strong potential, but this is an infant today.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve offers a beautiful perfume of violets, black currants, and subtle oak, lead pencil shavings, and spice characteristics. This full-bodied, creamy textured Cabernet possesses superb concentration, lovely purity, and a multilayered mouthfeel. It should drink well for two decades or more.

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which mostly comes from To-Kalon, has a relatively small production in this vintage (7,500 cases). The wine has a dense purple color and a wonderful, sweet, almost St.-Julien like nose of licorice, red and black currants, cedar, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, but authoritatively flavored, this wine is still young, rich, and very fine.

The 2004 vintage was the very last in which the Robert Mondavi family was involved with the winery, and it produced the best Mondavi Reserve since the 1996. Comprising 86 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is a sensational wine from a classic vintage in Napa Valley. Winemaker Genevieve Janssens has brought new luster to this Napa stalwart, and the winery still has access to some of the valleyandrsquo;s top Cabernet vineyards.

One of the ripest, highest alcohol Mondavi Reserve Cabs in memory, this wine is forward in cassis and cherry flavors, and while the tannins are pretty sturdy, itandrsquo;s sweet and soft enough to drink now. It definitely has the rich mouthfeel you want in a pricey Napa Cab. But itandrsquo;s young; cellar this one until at least 2010.
