MONDAVI CABERNET RESERVE '16   

Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon “Reserve”, To Kalon Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley 2016

NVWE Notes: In really great years Mondavi almost always makes great Cabernet and 2016 is one of their classic vintages. The aromas are a dense, tightly focused melange of Cassis, black raspberry, sour red cherry, pomegranate syrup, crushed dark rose, dried herb, tobacco, leather, cedar and mace scents poised above a drying mineral undercurrent. Despite all its savory counterpoints the wine remains fruit-centric on the palate, where substantial yet highly polished tannins bring a chiseled raciness to the mouth-feel. The finish is extremely long, fruit dominant and never less than satisfying. Truly dinner-worthy now, it will reward at least six year years of cellaring and should prove long-lived.

A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve opens with beautifully fragrant kirsch, wilted roses, candied violets and dried Provence herbs notes over a core of wild blueberries, red and black currants and mulberries plus wafts of tobacco leaf and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with perfumed, crunchy black fruits framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and finishes long and earthy. Drink Date 2020 - 2038.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is dense, powerful and explosive, with serious concentration and tannic heft. Readers should not be in a rush to open the 2016, as it needs time to come into its own. There is plenty to admire and look forward to in this decidedly virile, potent Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink 2022 - 2036. Antonio Galloni Dec 2018

Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon “Reserve”, To Kalon Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley 2016
Solidly built, featuring a core of cassis, bitter cherry and plum reduction notes, laced up with racy savory, iron and singed cedar accents. Takes a restrained approach, showing subtle energy, but the fruit is sneakily long and the finish nicely grounded. Best from 2021 through 2032. 8,550 cases made. JM Issue Oct 31, 2019
