Winemaker's Notes

Robert Mondavi Solaire Cabernet Sauvignon shows all the hallmarks of great Paso Robles fruit. This full-bodied wine displays aromas of blackberry, cassis, and sweet dark fruits, with flavors of blackberries and plum supported by ripe tannins and integrated, sweet vanilla oak.

This wine has beautiful elegance. It is soft and approachable now, and will further improve with careful cellaring for eight to ten years.

This cab is nothing to write home about, standing on its own. It came across as a little dull and with an unexciting flavor profile. That said, it's bold and solid enough to pair well with a juicy prime rib, medium rare. ;-)
