    Winemaker's Notes:

    Densely-packed aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, chocolate mint and Provencal herbs anticipate the deep, multi-layered flavors echoed within and augmented by lush black cherry, blueberry, anise, espresso and toasty oak. Firm, ample tannins and a persistent black-fruit finish assure the potential to develop even greater complexity in the years to come.

    Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petite Verdot, 3% Merlot, and 1% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dry, smooth and distinguished. Shows Mondavi's ability to get the grapes ripe in blackberries and currants, yet the fruit pulls back at the last moment, letting earthy, herbal notes take over, providing complexity and endless pleasure. The tannins are pure Oakville--sweet, soft and supple. Drink this elegant, balanced wine over the next six years.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is rich, seductive and full-bodied. Roasted, coffee beans, tobacco, licorice, incense and mint are all wrapped together in a rich, sensual fabric that is highly appealing. Today, the 2009 is open, radiant and totally expressive. Mondavi doesn’t take too many chances in this fairly middle-of-the-road offering. At the same time, there is no denying the 2009 is beautiful. The blend includes dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec.
