Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit's rich flavors, ripe tannins and balanced acidity enabled Michael to craft a Cabernet Sauvignon of unmatched richness, elegance and harmony. The wine's rich black fruit flavors and supple, sculpted tannins are fully married. This is a prestigious wine reflecting the animo, or "soul," of its maker: compelling, dynamic, and elegant.
My Notes:

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.
