Winemaker's Notes:

Elegant, balanced and approachable with bright floral notes, hints of currant, spice, dried berries and a touch of oak to smooth, bind and elevate the flavors. Complex and subtle, revealing itself over time.

About M by Michael Mondavi:

Four generations of passion and experience have come together to create the winery and the wines. It started in 1919 when Michael Mondavi's grandfather, Cesare, was elected to find grapes and winemaking supplies for families to make wine legally during Prohibition. Thus, the Mondavi family began their foray into California winemaking. Michael Mondavi Family Estate embodies Michael's vision of a great, single vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted from 100% estate grown fruit from high atop Atlas Peak on 15 acres of rocky, volcanic soil. It is stylistically reminiscent of the legendary Mondavi Cabernets that Michael made in the late 1960s and early 1970s - complex and subtle.
