Winemaker's Notes:

Profound and intense, this Cabernet casts aromas of dark, concentrated fruit, warm vanilla and star anise around a powerful mid-palate of vibrant huckleberry, blackberry and currant flavors. Its well-defined structure is accentuated by notes of freshly cut oregano, lemon verbena and bay leaves woven into the firm, seamless tannins. Continuing in the tradition of bold yet graceful Napa Valley Cabernets, this wine captivates with a lengthy, enduring finish.

Varietal blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec

About Robert Mondavi Winery:

For more than 40 years, Robert Mondavi Winery has been the symbol of Napa Valley. Founded in 1966, it was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition (1933), and went on to establish the foundation for modern California winemaking. Robert Mondavi Winery's mission-styled architecture, with the expansive archway and bell tower designed by Cliff May, has become an enduring landmark that honors California's history. With the philosophy that great wines reflect their origins, Robert Mondavi Winery pursues the fullest expression of the terroir of its Napa Valley vineyards: the historic To Kalon Vineyard in the Oakville American Viticultural Area (AVA), and the Wappo Hill Vineyard in the Stags Leap Vineyard AVA.
