Dear friends of ours, a couple so delightful in spirit that they adopt aged, abandoned dogs, clean them up and make sure they have the most sublime last few years of their lives, invited us over to visit their latest pooch. Their newly rescued fourteen year old terrier, Audrey, was looking vibrant with glossy coat and waggy tail. A far cry from the dusty critter from the shelter's photograph.

Audrey wasn't the only aging beauty that our friends shared with us that evening. They very kindly opened this 1986 Robert Mondavi. Despite its age, at thirty two the wine retained a good deal of freshness with focused aromatics. High toned fruit, dried leaves and subtle leather combine on the palate and evolve through the long finish. Like Audrey, my tail was wagging.

Cassis, tobacco, a touch of green bell pepper.

This was one of those transcendent moments in history I’ll never forget, alongside my first time meeting Mr. Mondavi and my first glass of cab at the winery. It’s a special place here in town for us

Exceptional bottle. I was totally surprised by this intro level Cab 😮 bell pepper, asparagus, wet leaves and forest floor. Fruits start to fade away but still holding together. Savory goodness. Not too much depth but this was hard to beat <$20 range. Perfect time to drink this 2010. 14.5% alc

Holding up nicely! Great acid, structure and texture... wonderfully tarry. And also nostalgic; it’s the year I started at RMW... what fun.
