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.
"What a beautiful Cabernet. It's dry and classically elegant, with sweet, ripe tannins, framing succulent blackberry, black cherry, violet, cedar and mineral flavors. Really a great wine for drinking now, and so balanced, it will easily negotiate a decade in the bottle."

Peter Mondavi Sr remains at the helm of the winery, with day-to-day operations handled by his two sons Marc and Peter Jr.
It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
