Wine Spectator 89 points - Still a bit reticent, but with a structured core of cedar and dusty oak-laced currant and dark berry flavors. Touches of dried herb and sage lead to a tannic finish, but this will only get better with time. Drink now through 2026. 18,210 cases made. -JL  (Oct 31 2015)

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. We selected all Oakville bench vineyards for this wine, including 82% from Robert Mondavi’s historic To Kalon Vineyard.
Producer
Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fume Blanc. Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, including Stag’s Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions. Our winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on our founder’s mandate to always strive higher, to pursue Robert Mondavi’s goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.
