Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2012

When Tim Mondavi describes his Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Oakville region of Napa Valley, he admires their powerful flavors and muscular tannins, but he most loves their elegance and the way they coat ones palate with velvet. Oakville is distinguished by an alluvial fan extending from the base of the Mayacamas Mountains that form the valleys western border. The Oakville bench, which lies against the hills, has well-drained soils that allow deep rooting and the development of complex flavors in the grapes. We selected all Oakville bench vineyards for this wine, including 82% from Robert Mondavis historic To Kalon Vineyard. [+]
