This is quite oaky on the nose with tea, black spice and sweet vanilla aromas over some soft prune fruit. Rather large-scaled in the mouth with a soft, rich and creamy texture and some obvious alcohol on the palate. The mid-palate shows a lot of wood tannins. Creamy caramel and dried ginger accents to the cranberry and red cherry fruit pick up some mint on the modest, drying finish. 84pts

For a bargain chardonnay, this is a great, crisp wine with apples and almost a hint of cinnamon with great montrachet-like buttery toasty oak. Not great depth, but a tasty wine for the price. Try it! 8/12/09

Good, drinkable, relatively cheap wine. Great for a light dinner on a warm summer night.

    Scent is a bit earthy, with smoky licorice. Smooth start, smoky cherry with a tangy finish.

    I was able to pick this bottle up for $22 and I should have bought a case!!! Great bottle filled with classic Napa tones of blackberry and toasty vanilla.

    Very nice bottle for the price. Everything you expect from a great year at Napa and a great producer.

    A good solid wine. Well priced and with consistently good fruit and medium tannins. There's a reason why the company was sold for over $1bn.

    11/13/2010

    Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. This oak-influenced effort starts out quite happily with very rich aromas redolent of apples, toast and sweet cream, and, while it initially impresses as a big, well-ripened wine, it surprises a bit by being fairly firm and less outgoing in the mouth. It tastes of green apples and citrus and keeps its oak nicely in check, and it should expand and show more complexity if it is allowed to rest quietly for at least a year or two.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.


    11/13/2010

    Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Sweet oak, hints of dark coffee and a dusting of cocoa overlie solid, ripe-cherry fruit first in the focused aromas and then again in the medium-deep flavors of this solidly varietal offering. While the label's claim of 16% alcohol raises some real apprehension, we must admit to finding little heat here and applaud the wine's surprising sense balance. The wine is neither soft nor overdone, and it is in fact slightly restrained and just firm enough to argue for few further years of age.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.


    11/13/2010

    Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. More attractive in nose than mouth, this wine starts with aromas of green apples, roasted grains, stones and tart citrus, delivered at low volume but decently focused nonetheless. A slightly round start on the palate fails to lead to like-minded flavors, however, and a shortened finish ensues. The world has every right to expect more from Mondavi in a great vintage.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.


    11/13/2010

    Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. There are elements of an ambitious wine here, yet for all of its size, its obvious oak and its amplified ripeness, this one is a bit of a plain Jane when it comes to clear Cabernet fruit and gives up to dry tannins and overt heat without ever expressing much in the way of varietal soul.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

    Offers a modest mix of spicy pear, melon and apple flavors that are delicate and refined, ending with a clean, minerally aftertaste. Drink now through 2013.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

    Tasting Notes:

    Meyer lemon and honeysuckle mingling with a hint of clove and toasty oak. Elevated flavors of juicy Gala apple, lemon, a lick of crème brulee and a tinge of minerality echo on the palate, evolving into a long, toasty finish. A hugely flavorful, weighty wine whose subtle acids keep it lithe and lively.
