Robert Mondavi Winery Chardonnay Carneros Unfiltered 1996
Our 1996 Oakville District Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the great climate and soils that surround our winery in the geographic center of Napa Valley. Complex and muscular, this wine captures the unique characteristics of the region with deep layers of cassis and wild berries interwoven with nuances of cedar, vanillin and spice. The Oakville District has been the cradle of great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons for over 120 years.
Brownish inky color. Reserved nose, with medicinal and herbal notes. VELVET texture! Insane balance - huge, but so silky. Low tannins and acid. Long+. Juicy. Refined. Vanilla. Light smoke. Charming! Was decanted. My favorite wine to date.

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 750ml
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Unfiltered 750ml
Pure, rich and concentrated, this bold, graceful wine offers a deep core of earthy currant, blackberry and plum, with hints of herb, mocha and black licorice, giving it uncommon complexity and depth. Ends with firm tannins and a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2017.
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.
Bone dry and utterly balanced, with deeply powerful, long-lasting flavors of blackberries and black currants and an intense, but integrated, coating of smoky oak. But it's also very tannic. Nothing soft about this wine. As fine a cellar candidate as any Mondavi Reserve in years. Should develop for 12, 15, even 20 years.
A wonderful expression of stylish Cabernet that's ripe, fleshy, complex and layered, highlighting ripe currant, wild berry and blueberry, with touches of cedar and cigar box. The flavors gain traction on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive. The 2007 should evolve for 20-25 years.

Our 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has opulent layers of cassis, blackberry, spice and hazelnut, with exceptionally elegant tannins. Filet mignon with shiitake mushrooms, accompanied with a gratin of potatoes with white truffle oil, is a one of many delicious pairing for this velvety win
