A juicy, fruity red with currant and berry character. Full body with chewy tannins and a long finish. Plenty of mint and spice character, too. This is still very young and needs time to soften. Outstanding structure... A juicy, fruity red with currant and berry character. Full body with chewy tannins and a long finish. Plenty of mint and spice character, too. This is still very young and needs time to soften. Outstanding structure. Better in 2016.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a delicious entry-level offering. Sweet spices, plums, mocha, cloves, licorice and black cherries meld together in a graceful, impeccable wine loaded with class. A jewel of a wine in its price range, the 2010 hits all the right notes. The balance of fruit, tannin and acidity is terrific. Gently spiced notes resonate on the expressive finish. The 2010 was made from a variety of ties in Oakville, Stags Leap and Carneros, with about a third of the fruit coming from young vines in To-Kalon.

Winery

Mondavi, Robert

Robert Mondavi Winery is a leading California wine producer established by its namesake in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for the winery. The historic vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.

Beyond the To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, including Stag’s Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay).

Robert Mondavi was instrumental in bringing worldwide recognition for the wines of the Napa Valley and promoted the labeling of wines varietally which is now the standard for New World wines. One of his most important collaborations was with Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, creating Opus One, which has become one of California’s icon Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

For 5 decades, Robert Mondavi Winery has led California’s wine industry, and much of the world, with innovations in winemaking and winegrowing.

The Robert Mondavi brand was acquired by Constellation Brands in 2004 and following its sale, Robert Mondavi partnered with his younger son Tim and daughter Marcia to create Continuum Estate. Robert Mondavi passed away in 2008 at the age of 94.
