Natalie's Score: 93/100

Spectacular: finesse, elegance and all those other vague superlatives that truly apply to this wine. Old World styling, balance, structure and length with New World concentration, energy and optimism. Yes, we’re still talking about wine here. This is the Napa classic. You deserve to try it at least once… you’ll be back.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: slow roasted prime rib, perfectly grilled steaks, braised lamb.

Reviews and Ratings

Robert Mondavi is an Old World style, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from California's Napa Valley. A classic Cab, in fact. Look for blackberry, dark cherry, dark chocolate and a whiff of mint flavours on this full-bodied red with finesse and power. Pair with late-into-the-evening conversations. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
