Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1991
Robert Mondavi is recognised by many as one of the most important figures in American wine having founded his namesake winery in 1966 with the aim of creating world-class Napa Valley wines. He selected the To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery and this hallowed first-growth-equivalent vineyard, located in Oakville, is known for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world. 1991 was an excellent Napa vintage and this is now showing its full array of complexities having matured nicely in bottle for nearly 30 years. Rich and layered, it exudes wonderful notes of cassis, dried herbs, cigar box and spice.
