Robert Mondavi Winery – Oakville – Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, powerful and racy. It reveals notes of blackberry and notes of cassis associated with slight notes of Sichuan pepper (in the background), black pepper, oaky touches as well as slight notes of sage and black olive (in the background). The palate is fruity, mineral, elegant, silky, suave, racy, deep, fat and offers a nice structure. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of strawberry, blackberry and cassis combined with oaky touches, slight notes of vanilla, toasted notes and a touch of cocoa. Tannins are fine and elegant. Good length and persistence.
