Natalie's Score: 90/100

A full-bodied, classically structured cabernet with aromas of dark fruit and toasty oak. Balanced, with a long finish.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I still have two bottles of this magnificent wine in my wine rack, and waiting for a special occasion. I love this wine. From the moment you pour it in the glass, you'll appreciate the deep dark intense color. Then bring it to your nose. It will delight you with aromas of fruit, cinnamon, and oak. And then the taste. It doesn't disappoint as a big wine. It's smooth subtle flavor, hints of oak and I promise it will compliment any meal. A winner for sure.
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of undisclosed amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petit Syrah and Teroldego – all sourced from the Napa Valley. It has intense, lifted aromas of cherry, black currant, pine, oak and vanilla. It has a medium to full, integrated body, structure that still needs to come together with refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and somewhat lacking acidity, and a medium to long, silky finish. Enjoy as a sipper; drink now to 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended based on quality – on Limited Time Offer for $3 off until April 1st/13. Tasted March/13.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
