1999 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Napa Valley more

5/28/2015 - *Vine* wrote: NR

Popped and poured, deep ruby hue. Pronounced aromas of cigar box, cassis, plummy fruits, smoked herbs and a touch of roasted red bell pepper. Has a certain elegance in mouth...not light per se yet lithe nonetheless. Black fruits, black currant, tobacco plus a huge impression of crushed stones and minerals in the palate. Drying, chewy tannins on the lengthy close. Reminiscent of a classed-growth Graves and while drinking splendidly right now this has the structure to age effortlessly for years, if not decades.
Beautiful Cabernet, a testament to Tim Mondavi.

Quick comment: I'd opt for drinking this in the near term while the fruit is still in sync with the tannins.

Deep color but not inky, fruit forward with a sweet impression. I am doubtful there is any RS; I believe the sweet impression is from the richness of fruit. Nice berry/ cocoa combination. Fairly rich. Controversial style but I like it. I believe this sweet fruit impression has more to do with the appellation than wine-making style.

Drinking beautifully. Pure cassis with cedar and generous body and velvety tannin. No need to hold longer

Have been drinking this wine for several years, and was never very impressed. Now it is finally coming into it's own.

Cork was brittle and we had to strain the wine in the end. But, the juice was flawless and the fruit is still there. It's just beginning to show age that tells me drink it now.

As always, cheap but pleasant. Bite is pretty harsh throughout, but has a good flavor profile.

Continues to drink very well. Needs a couple hours of air time, then really blossoms into something special. Drank with ribeye.

Nose of red cherry fruit, cassis, plum, fig, and cigar box, bright plum color in the glass, more of the same on the palate, improved throughout the afternoon, medium/big body, delicious, mouth filling, and a long,long, finish.

Drinking very well now. Had this about 7 years ago and it was great. It's better now. Nicely balanced with plenty of fruit to go around. Integrated tannins. Dark berry flavors. Very nice wine. Drink now-2018

Decent bottle of chard for the price. The mouth feel isn't as buttery as the nose would suggest. Not overly complex with a strong new oak presence.

Well wet cork and top of shoulder level. Solid cork though and the words "My Fifty Third Harvest" clearly stated (Photo Added).
Decanted for 40 minutes. One needs to be careful of fine sediment here.On the light side, well matured but rather than an earthy beast this was more red fruited, cherries with a nice sweet core and silky tannin. Very enjoyable well aged wine albeit in decline. We suggest one drinks sooner than later. 92

Opened in relatively short order. Blackberries, tobacco, leather, cassis, some dusty tannins, long and smooth. Lovely. 25 second finish. 2/3 of a teaspoon of sediment.

Decanted, tasted over 3 hrs, cork saturated and heavy mold on top
-mostly opaque dark red with minimal bricking
-moderately expressive plum cassis touch of oak and mature cedar-y elements
-med/med- acidity, typical cab cassis/plum remnants, noticeable but not obtrusive oak, not much depth or complexity, tannins mostly resolved
-pleasant and correct though fairly uninteresting, not flawed or completely over the hill but just unexciting

Dinner at the Palace. Very good pairing with medium rare lamb chops. I like this wine more than the more resent professional reviews. I could smell the cedary nose as soon as I poured a glass. Very smooth and resolved.

Cruising the Oceans; 5/17/2015-5/24/2015: Dusty clean chalk nose. Very smooth and integrated. Fruity on the palate. Tannins 6/10. Fruitier than I had expected. Some nice dryness on the finish but not harsh

Nice expressive nose. Smells like a Syrah from the South of France: Sour cherries, wild berries, spices of which black pepper above all. On the palate lean and expressive. I'm a fan!

Not as powerful as the last bottle but still very good. Lots of mint and eucalyptus on the finish. Seemed a bit more muted this time. lighter and very easy to drink. Just a touch more alcohol on the finish than previous bottles.

If you have one, I'd let it sit a few more years. Tannins still strong enough to endure, and secondary flavours just partly developed, while the fruit isn't super strong right now.

Rusty color which made the wine look much older than it actually was. Ripe plum and coffee notes. Smooth, elegant and well balanced. Seemed also quite mature in the finish. This is an auction bottle with unknown past, but knowing 40+ years old Mondavi Reserves I suggest that this bittle has been stored too warm. Still a solid and very enjoyable wine.
