Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's 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.

  The Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 after a family split with the Charles Krug Winery, which had been founded by Robert’s father.  After heading out on his own, Robert settled on land in Napa valley, and in particular the famed To Kalon Vineyard in the Rutherford district. The original plot in To Kalon Vineyard was only 12 acres, but today there are 450 acres under vine. The Robert Mondavi Winery also includes the Wappo Hill Vineyard, which is a 400 acre plot in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Within a year of its inception, the Robert Mondavi Winery proved to be a true pioneer, not only with the establishment of his winery but also by introducing and popularizing the use of French oak barrels for wine, European wine techniques, and the bottling of varietal wines. Robert Mondavi Winery only uses French Oak barrels for storing wine, and his influence and success led to the practice’s prevalence. Among Mondavi’s greatest successes one would have to count the creation of the Fume Blanc moniker for Sauvignon Blanc as well as the introduction of his benchmark Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet. Today Robert Mondavi’s legacy is carried on under the watchful eye of his wife who works with the current winemakers Genevieve Janssens, Gustavo Gonzalez, and Richard Arnold to ensure that today’s Robert Mondavi wines deliver the elegance, appeal, and character that Robert had intended.

Not a fruit-forward wine by any means. LOTS of tannin. Not necessarily a bad thing, but let that be a warning to tannophobes. The flavor profile points me to tobacco, dark chocolate, mocha. Not the kind of wine you want to sip—more the kind of wine that you want to accompany food. It is very full-bodied. So, it will with a robust meal—a beef or game roast or a stew. Also, since it does not have a lot of fruit, it will not compete with the preparation of your meal.
