2009 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1112204 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Mondavi's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sumptuous and beautiful. Plums, mocha, cloves and pencil shavings are all woven together in this gorgeous, large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are in the right place. Silky, nuanced tannins frame the voluptuous, caressing finish. A wine of centeredness and gorgeous precision, the 2009 is a true standout. The tannins need a few years to soften, but once that starts to happen, the 2009 should enjoy a long life. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (15% alcohol; 82% To Kalon): Deep medium ruby. Near-roasted ripeness to the aromas of kirsch, wild dark berries, cocoa powder, black olive and licorice; distinctly higher-toned than the 2010. Then plush, sweet and ripe on the palate; much more open-knit than the 2010 and showing great early appeal. Dark berry, cocoa powder and mineral flavors saturate the mouth and build on the long finish. This very deep, rich wines finishes with huge but ripe tannins. It's hard to imagine that this wine won't shut down in the bottle at some point. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2016)
