2018 Robert Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
When Tim Mondavi describes his Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Oakville region of Napa Valley, he admires their powerful flavors and muscular tannins, but he most loves their elegance and the way they coat one’s palate with velvet. Oakville is distinguished by an alluvial fan extending from the base of the Mayacamas Mountains that form the valley’s western border. The Oakville bench, which lies against the hills, has well-drained soils that allow deep rooting and the development of complex flavors in the grapes.
This is quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. About as rich and elegant as you will find, and at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for the Reserve bottling. Rated 93 Points Lisa's Staff.
