Mouthfilling, firm yet round, a balance of power and grace. This wine is aristocracy with an Austrailian twist. It boldly shows off the coveted old-vine Cabernet fruit of our McLaren Vale estates through its richly concentrated flavors, yet manages to convince you that it is also remarkably easy to drink with its soft tannins and long, smooth finish.
A joint venture between Robert Mondavi and Rosemount Estate, the wine was blended by Tim Mondavi, Philip Shaw and Ian Shepherd.
"Despite the hot summer, 2001 was an outstanding year for Cabernet Sauvignon in McLaren Vale. We really think this wine epitomized McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon - ripe berry and a firm, gripping palate with rich mouth-filling flavors."
-winemaker Ian Shepherd
