Two Wines from Robert Mondavi – Napa Valley 09 Cabernet Sauvignon and Fume Blanc:

CABERNET SAUVIGNON   Napa Valley 2009          TASTING NOTES

Deep, dense and concentrated, the flavors echo intense aromas of blueberry, bramble and cassis intermingled with cocoa, cinnamon and sweet, toasty oak. Bold, yet supple on the palate, the dark, richly fruity flavors are balanced by a bright acidity and long finish.

Textbook Napa Cab. It’s dry, smoothly tannic and subtle, with blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate flavors nicely intrigued with herbs, tobacco and cedar. Just delicious now and for the next few years. – S.H.

FUME BLANC    Napa Valley –   2009            TASTING NOTES

Fresh aromas of lime, guava and lemon verbena anticipate crisp, mouthwatering flavors of ripe honeydew, lemongrass and honeysuckle with subtle spice notes. The ample mouthfeel and creamy texture is enlivened by zesty acidity and lingering citrus flavors.
