Robert Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
Location, Location,Location!

This wine comes from Napa Valley's most hallowed ground, the Oakville AVA. Oakville is home to Napa's most esteemed Vineyards and Wineries, boasting the likes of Screaming Eagle, Opus One, Silver Oak, Plumpjack, Far Niente and of course the one that started it all Robert Mondavi. The Mondavi Oakville wines have always flown a bit under the radar and to our taste represents one of the best values in wine. These wines are primarily sourced from the famed To Kalon Vineyard, and deliver about 95% of the quality while selling only for a fraction of the price.

2015 Robert Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon...$49.99
We are the lowest price in the country on Wine-Searcher by almost $8
Ripe blackcurrant compote, rhubarb, ivy, bark, herbs and vanilla. Full-bodied with very polished, refined tannins and some real complexity to the dark, mineral-laden fruit. Drink in 2021.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
