Since 1944 our Peter Mondavi Family flagship wine, Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, has
been crafted only when the vintage is optimum. Dark ruby in color, with a wonderful nose of cassis,
blackberry and licorice, this classy and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon shows supple tannins, palate
richness and length. Enjoy final accent notes of espresso, vanilla and chocolate.
The 2006 growing season was preceded by abundant rainfall through April. In spite of much flooding in many vineyards, budbreak showed overall quality, but near-record high temperatures in July brought brix levels almost to a halt through the end of August. A late harvest required extended hang time, but overall, the quality of the fruit was good in spite of many weather extremes.
