Winemaker's Notes:

Number 89 of Wine Spectator's 2003 Top 100 Wines!

Our 1999 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon is made exclusively from grapes grown in this renowned region of Napa Valley. We selected four vineyards, including our own, that yield exceptionally pure flavors and silky tannins, the signature of the district. Layers of black cherry, currant, violets and sandalwood are enveloped in the wines lush texture; spicy complexity from French chateau barrels lingers on the finish.

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.
