Robert Mondavi Maestro Red Blend

A 95 Point Bordeaux Blend from Napa’s most famous Winery? Yes Please!!
2017 Robert Mondavi Maestro Red Blend....$34.99
This is dense and layered with a beautiful and poised combination of tannin and fruit. Full-bodied and reserved with blueberry, currant and light plum. Some chocolate undertones, too. Needs a couple of years to come completely together. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 5% cabernet franc and 2% malbec. Drink after 2022 and onwards.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
Offers a ripe and forward mix of plum sauce, crushed blackberry and steeped black cherry flavors along with dried anise and singed apple wood notes. A briary hint scores the finish, which isn't shy on grip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2021 through 2031.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Spectator
