History In The Making

Robert Mondavi Winery is the most renowned winery in all of Napa - scratch that - all of California - scratch that - all of the US - scratch that - all of the Western Hemisphere. The proud legacy continues today, with premium grapes grown in the terroir that Mondavi brilliantly staked his claim on so many years ago…

Oakville is that little hamlet in the very heart of the Napa Valley known for its distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It’s legendary terroir was what propelled Robert Mondavi to greatness for recognizing it and betting big on making it the premier appellation in North America. See what all the fuss is about for 25% off, today only.

Dark and foreboding in the glass, this Cabernet is inky black except for the very edge, which shimmers with an almost iridescent fuchsia. You’ll instantly recognize a well-made wine with its expansive bouquet of plums, dusty bramble, sandalwood, cherry compote, and fig. Taking a sip, your palate is greeted with a medley of black plum, mild leather, black currant, and savory herbs. Soft with bright acidity, it particularly shines mid-palate with grippy tannin that hugs your tongue and hangs on for a lasting finish. Perfect for an evening session on the grill with a nice little bavette steak topped with chimichurri.

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck “The medium-bodied, more elegant 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) reveals a nuanced bouquet of black raspberries, red cassis, graphite, violets, and toasted spices. It’s not a blockbuster, but it has a terrific sense of elegance and purity as well as balance.”

92 Points - James SucklingAromas of spices and walnuts with dark-berry and currant character. Eucalyptus, too. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a subtle, fruity finish. Beautiful now. Enjoy.”
