2008 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1086151 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Another classic, centered on pure rich mocha, blackberry and minty herb flavors, gliding along from midpalate on, ending supple and graceful. (JL, Web Only-2016) Inner quote mark

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (15.5% alcohol; 82% To Kalon): Bright, dark ruby. Very sexy, cool aromas of fresh black cherry, black olive and pepper. Suave and energetic, offering excellent energy and clarity of flavor, not to mention superb retention of dark berry fruit, along with pepper and balsamic nuances. Just a touch of torrefaction here to add another dimension. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and excellent length. Hold this. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Mondavi's 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is just beginning to enter its early plateau of maturity. Hints of smoke, leather, tobacco, incense and dried herbs are laced throughout. Still quite potent, the 2008 will drink well for another 15 years or more. Today, it comes across as very youthful and full of life. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A very fine Cabernet, fancy and elegant in the mouth, although the tannins are tough and the wine wants some time. Your first impression is of astringency, a combination both of grape skin and oak tannins. Next, the blockbuster core of blackberries and black currants hits, leading to a long, spicy finish. Despite high alcohol, this seems like a wine that should develop over the next ten years. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (12/2011)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark With lots of sweet oak surrounding its very ripe fruit, the latest Mondavi Reserve is an especially outgoing wine and holds little back. It is supple and full and wonderfully rich on the palate, and it stays in balance despite its very evident ripeness. A scant bit of heat comes up in the finish and ultimately costs it higher marks, but this a crowd- pleasing Cabernet by any standard, and it has room to grow for another five-plus years. Inner quote mark (12/2011)
