First time I tried this wine - giving, chocolate, blackberries, sustains well. Hedonistic. Tasty.

Ms. Right and Ms. Right are one and the same. Stunning fruit, bruised yet Devine cherry with classic cassis, a little floral violet nose and suede subtly lurking with a harmonized blend of oak showing warm lactones spice and character. The tannin if sublime and can be enjoyed now or saved. Super!!!

Chocolate and forest fruit. Voluptuous with good mouth-feel and a sustained finish.

The Michael Mondavi wines are always well made, pleasurable and, most importantly, balanced and restrained. This wine has a richness with velvet tannins and good focus. We will drink the entire bottle. And perhaps another.

Blackberry, cassis, licorice, eucalyptus, vanilla, plum, oak and hints of sage. Good structure and quite tannic.

Contemporary Napa Cabernet Sauvignon done very well. Dee, dark and rich without being too abrasive. I highly recommend a tall glass.
