Robert Mondavi – Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2010 – Oakville – Napa Valley

(88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 1% Malbec) The nose is aromatic, fine and offers concentration and a racy minerality. It reveals notes of cassis associated with fine touches of bell pepper, plum, a hint of sour cherry as well as a discreet hint of violet, cassis cream, mocha and rose (very discreet). The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, refined, slightly tight and offers a beautiful minerality, freshness, a nice harmony, finesse as well as a beautiful, suave and unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, cassis and touches of plum associated with fine touches of chocolate, zan as well as hints of licorice and an imperceptible hint of black pepper. Tannins are fine, elegant and velvety. Good length.
