Food Pairings for Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
I had this wine at Maggiano's in Philly on a recommendation and I thought it was wonderful. I'm normally not a fan of really full-bodied wines, but this had a great taste to it, a wonderful aroma, and went very well with my lasagna.
Earthy and deep with black fruit aromas. Palate is full bodied with loads of ripe fruit, some nice spice and warm tannins.
A crowd pleaser. This wine doesn't try to do any fancy tricks but is very enjoyable. Tannins are pretty well balanced now, so I'm not sure how this wine would stand up to aging.
Deep clear red/purple in color. Excellent nose (Lush fruit with hints of chocolate). Sits calmly on the palette and tastes of chocolate, cassias, and balanced tannins with a smooth finish
Outstanding! One of the best wines I've tried. Smooth, velvety, lingures and warms. Great aromas, you can taste the berries and spices. Just a great, great wine.
Flavors of blackberry and currents with a medium length finish.
Blend of 5 grapes. Scents of wood, smoke, and berries. Tangy start, dry berry flavor with a smoky finish.
External Reviews for Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
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 winersquo;s suave finish makes the above Cabernet seem almost rustic in comparison. An impressive rsquo;96.
If you missed out on Robert Mondavirsquo;s 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, try to find a few bottles of the sumptuously rich, decadent, showy 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve that is about to be released. It is a sweeter, riper, more unctuously-styled Cabernet. While it may lack some of the classicism of the 1991 Reserve, it is s super-rich, full-bodied, flamboyant, unctuously-textured wine that should drink well for 20+ years.
Mondavirsquo;s flagship red was stunning in 1994, securing the No. 5 slot in last yearrsquo;s Top 100. This is a worthy successor, displaying the Mondavi signature of dense, rich fruit while maintaining a tremendous sense of elegance and finesse.
Undurchlässiges Purpur. Vielschichtiges Fruchtbouquett mit feiner Gianduja-Note dahinter, schwarze Kirschen, Rosenessenz, Cassisgelee und reife Pflaumen. Fülliger Gaumen mit stoffigen Tanninen und feiner Tabaknote, viel Biss in der Mitte, malziges Extrakt und gute Balance zwischen Süsse und Frische, komplexe, schwarze Frucht und Nussschokolade, gegen das Finale noble Terroirnoten an schwarze Oliven und Lakritze erinnernd.
This sample was a knockout at the blind tasting of 1987 Cabernet barrel samples. This is undoubtedly the finest Reserve since the 1974, perhaps even the 1970. The wine shows great richness, a fabulous nose of smoky oak and jammy blackcurrants. The flavors in the mouth are terrific as this wine has astounding depth, a hedonistic level of fruit, and a tremendous finish. This is the kind of wine that California can produce and is capable of winning the hearts and souls of the masses. Anticipated maturity: 1991ndash;2004.
Soft and succulent blackberry and cassis fruit upfront, framed by squeaky clean tannins and solid oak elements. This is most notable for its voluptuous, velvety texture, which coats the palate with sweet flavors. Itrsquo;s not a big wine but a balanced, harmonious one, and a success for the vintage.
92 points - Wine Spectator "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" James Laube
90 points Wine Enthusiast: What's so nice about this wine is that it has full-throttle Chard personality while keeping everything so balanced that it's also a versatile food wine. You can't say that about a lot of Chardonnays. Mainly it's the acidity, but also the complex, subtle interplay of fruit and oak. A very nice job. (Sep 2007)
An inky wine that follows through on the promise of its deep, dark color to deliver intensity in every way. In the nose, ripe aromas of wild blueberry merge with a hint of black olive and notes of spice and vanilla derived from aging in new French oak. In the mouth, the powerful tannins are chewy and generous, and beautifully balanced by the wine’s equally dense flavors of black fruits—blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry and crème de cassis. Vibrant and alive with fresh acidity, the 2005 Reserve is a powerful wine that carries its considerable muscle with elegance and style Deep, dark color signals the wine’s intensity. Aromas of wild blueberry contain hints of black olive and spicy vanilla from oak aging. Dense flavors of blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry are enhanced by elegantly powerful tannins and vibrant acidity
