Robert Mondavi Oakville 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $48.44-$62.99, 95 points, poured core black grading Bordeaux purple/red with a bleeding meniscus and dense stained glass sheeting.
Aromatic black licorice, floral incense, iodine, pencil, and a soft black currant smell were fantastic.
Full-bodied red wine embraced a soft mouth-feel, showed good acidity, sported a solid underlayment of tannin, and delivered generous flavors of red fruit, plum, and violets.
Finished long on a well-balanced 15% alcohol-infused trailing palate while being tart, herbal, spicy, dry, and nuanced with cinnamon and clove.
Best R. Mondavi wine I've tasted.
