Robert MondaviNapaValley 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $15.56-$29.99, 91 points:
At this time of the year I often get involved with people who want to buy wine as a gift below $20.00, and my safe-bet is right here; I paid $15.56 for a bona fide gem of a Cabernet Sauvignon with just a hint of Syrah.
Core-black color gives-way to ruby and orange glitters at the rim.
This wine possesses a wonderful aroma of Black-currant and cherry with hints of plum and ground Coriander, all carried nicely on a nearly full body of silk with a bit of espresso-mocha on a fair spiced plum finish.
This is a quaffer, and at 15% alcohol you'll notice it.
I've reviewed the 2006 with similar results, and I'm hoping to get to the 2007 when a certain someone gets home for the Holidays.
В холодні ночі це вино є теплим і гострий:-)
