Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers mouth-filling, deeply intense blackberry fruit across the palate with clove and cardamom spice complexity and dusty tannins that add structure to the juicy fullness of the fruit.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc

James Suckling

Aromas of dark berries, spearmint and mint follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. Shows tension and beauty. Drink after 2022.

The value-priced 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is well worth seeking out and is ideal for readers who feel all the wines in Napa are over-priced. This sexy, rounded effort sports a deep, inky color as well as upfront cassis and jammy blackberry fruits, medium body, sweet tannins, and terrific overall balance.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon is a picture-perfect example of this grape variety grown in the Napa Valley. TASTING NOTES: This wine is well-built with soft tannins and beautifully ripened fruit. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruit and shading of oak should make it perfect for a grilled steak. (Tasted: May 10, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
A direct, focused style, with a core of steeped cherry and plum preserve flavors, liberally lined with toasted vanilla and licorice notes. Sports a pleasant tug of earth at the end of the juicy finish. Textbook Cabernet. Drink now through 2026.

Robert Mondavi  Winery Video
Robert Mondavi Winery was founded in 1966 by winemaking pioneer Robert Mondavi, whose vision was to create Napa Valley wines that could stand in the company of the world’s finest. It was the first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition, Robert Mondavi Winery created the foundation for the modern-day California wine industry. Today, Robert Mondavi Winery continues to pursue the fullest expression of Napa Valley terroir in wines that are also varietally authentic. Mondavi chose to situate his estate next to To Kalon Vineyard, one of the most coveted wine growing parcels in the world, known for producing award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and for its Sauvignon Blanc.

One of the first goals Robert Mondavi set for himself was recreating Sauvignon Blanc, which was, at the time a sweet, unnuanced wine. He sought inspiration in Loire Valley Pouilly Fumé, enlivening it with a uniquely California profile. He named the delightfully rich and refined yet bright, fresh wine he created Fumé Blanc. It’s Sauvignon Blanc, plus so much more. Released in 1968, Fumé Blanc remains Mr. Mondavi’s signature and one of Robert Mondavi Winery’s most popular wines.

The first vintage (1966) of Robert Mondavi Winery's Cabernet Sauvignon is released. A shot heard throughout the Valley, it would inspire the waves of pioneers to follow. In time, the path Robert Mondavi cleared would lead to the creation of some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, Merlots and Sauvignon Blancs in the world.

“Our mission at Robert Mondavi Winery is to produce wines of elegance and complexity that are recognized globally for their exceptional quality,” says Geneviève Janssens, chief winemaker at Robert Mondavi Winery.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
