Robert Mondavi Oakville 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $48.44-$56.99, 92+ points, appeared leggy on the glass wall with a broad transparent circumferential rim, while trending deep crushed black currant purple/red toward the black core.
With hints of chocolate, black currant, and toasty blackberry pie, the restrained aroma was quite good.
The lush full body carried good acidity and granny tannin.
Flavors consistently reflected the aroma, all of which trailed toward a spectacular finish of intense spice, heat (14.5%alcohol), and mint. Finally, just a hint of astringency might be too much for some.
