Antonio Galloni - The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is an attractive, open-knit wine that will drink well relatively early for the year. Dark red cherry, cloves, mint, new leather and cedar are all quite expressive. Succulent and forward, Mondavi's Cabernet Sauvignon is also one of the more approachable wines of the vintage and is a solid value within the high-flying world of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 was done with 36% estate fruit.
Tasting Notes - Everything we love about Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon is here: a rich texture with silky tannins and balancing freshness; deep aromas and flavors of blackberries and dark plums, dried herbs and violets with a subtle hint of leather; and a luxuriously long finish that allows these complex flavors to linger on and on. 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. 15% ABV.
