AG 94 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Sweet red berries, mint, freshly cut roses and cinnamon lift from the glass in Mondavi's 2011 Pinot Noir Reserve. A crystalline, intensely perfumed Pinot, the 2011 Reserve is beautifully delineated in the glass, and a great example of the focus of the year. The 100% new French oak barrels are barely noticeable at all. The mid-weight, gracious style is all about balance, and there is plenty of that in this impeccable Pinot. This is a great showing from Mondavi.
According to Robert Parker - The dark ruby-colored 2011 Pinot Noir Reserve offers up a classy, noble and refined bouquet of sweet cherries, a touch of new oak, underbrush and a floral character. With good weight, richness and more power than one normally sees in a 2011 red, this fruit-forward, pretty Pinot is ideal for drinking over the next 5-6 years.
Tasting Notes - Stunning. Sleek, yet substantial with the beautiful scent of ripe black cherry, wild berries, violet, warm gingerbread and clove, with traces of allspice. These elements translate gracefully to the palate, with a seamless flow of sweet, floral raspberry that deepens into darker fruit flavors accented by truffle and spice notes. Throughout, the lively undertones of juicy cranberry lend the wine freshness and vitality framed by a sensual, silken texture. Harmonious, forever finish. Rated 90+
