Our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon is supple
and harmonious. Aromas of dark chocolate, orange peel
and roasted chestnuts combine with wild berries, coffee and
peanut brittle flavors.
The 2007 season began dry, about 60% of normal precipitation
with some very cold days and single-digit night
time temperatures around the New Year holiday. Temperatures
were warmer than normal as winter continued into
spring with resulting earlier budding, bloom and set in the
vineyards across all varieties. The summer months
remained cool, with few days topping 100 degrees except
for a brief heat spike around Labor Day. Clusters, as well as
individual berries, were notably smaller in all varieties due
to the dry season.
