Robert Mondavi Selections: Revisiting the 2006 vintage

Provided By:

Robert Mondavi Cabernet SauvignonWe recently had the opportunity to re-taste Robert Mondavi’s 2006 vintage wines, which we originally tasted in 2008. Two years in the bottle can often help big wines settle down and improve their flavors and soften their tannins. That is certainly the case here. While the 2006 vintage initially looked unpromising because of extended rains and delays in flowering, it ultimately allowed for long hang time, slow ripening and excellent fruit quality. These wines, now four years old, are each stunning examples of the high quality wines produced in 2006, which in our view were somewhat stronger than 2005 and have good aging potential. The 2007 Fumé Blanc Reserve To Kalon Vineyard, is also reviewed here. These wines are all fine examples of the superb winemaking at the Robert Mondavi Winery.
