ROBERT MONDAVI 'THE RESERVE TO KALON VINEYARD' CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CALIFORNIA 2015
RICH BLACKBERRY | PLUM | SWEET OAK | VANILLA BEAN | TOASTED ALMOND
What the Pros Say: Tasting Panel - 98 Points: "The fifth vintage of this iconic vineyard-designate reserve comes in at 14.5% ABV and comprises 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cab Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Although I’m inspired to write a sonnet after tasting it, I attempted to translate my notes into these succinct descriptives: Toffee-cedar and plum preserves accent the nose with an undertone of leather and coffee as the satiny entry leads to a dustier mid-palate. Tannins wrap the tongue with fleshy dark chocolate and dense blueberry oak."
