Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 - 750ml
93 Points James Suckling
A complex nose of fresh berries, olives, herbs and spices. Balanced, velvety palate with nice harmony and elegant tannins. Long, savory finish. Delicious. Drink or hold.
Most of the fruit for this wine was sourced from two of the valley’s most renowned sub-appellations and vineyards: our To Kalon Vineyard® in Oakville on the well-drained alluvial bench surrounding the winery and our Wappo Hill vineyard in the Stags Leap District. Their soils elicit a wonderfully concentrated, expressive, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. A smaller percentage of fruit comes from other top vineyard sites, including the Oak Knoll District, renowned for freshness and fullness.
The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning, then gently destemmed and crushed. The wine was fermented in French oak tanks for soft, supple tannins, and then stainless steel tanks for purity of fruit expression. Twenty-four days of maceration maximized color and flavor extraction and polished the tannins for a lush, round mouthfeel. The new wine was transferred to 60-gallon French oak barrels (19% new) for malolactic fermentation and 16 months of aging to develop greater roundness and depth. Small percentages of complementary varieties were included in the blend to enhance the wine’s structure, balance, and complex flavor profile. The wine was bottled in April 2020.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
