2001 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Drank from a magnum. Tannins still present and To Kalon fruit very delicious. But seems like its fading, as I had a prior 2001 magnum which was more fruit forward and complex. I believe Mr. Parker said this wine has a 20-25 drinking window. Sorry Mr. Parker, I think you were off on the longevity...but your score at the time was accurate. Drink up.

Tasted at the California Wine Experience, NY "Top Ten Tasting"
Dark ruby color, a bit watery at the rim; after much coaxing some cabernet fruit, spice and wood appears in the nose.
On palate very closed also, some sweetness and a bit of wood; Impression is good but at this stage it's very difficult to forecast what its future will be.

1987 Tasting 3 Bordeaux and 3 Cabernets. Started out a little barnyard, weedy, stemy, and then quickly blew off after thirty minutes to wonderful cabernet, big body of cabernet fruit with lots of tannin and fruit and acid to suggest 5 to 7 years of ageing is needed based on tasting, finish was long and improved as the wine sat in the glass to a great aftertaste. My #1 and Group #3.

Fantastic rich deep bottle. Classic and classy napa cab. Drunk from a magnum. My guess is this has at least 10 more years on it.

Don J's bottle. Excellent CalCab--rich, elegant, old school. Everything that always seduced me about Mondavi's wines is right here in this bottle. Black cherry, tobacco, mocha and the faintest note of cedar spice--youthful but maturing nicely. Drink or hold.

4 Cabernet and Lafite Rothschild tasted as Mondavi conducted its Reserve Future Tasting at Primas. I guessed 1, 2, and 4 correctly by country, vintage, and type.
Barrel Sample. Was easy to identify by its bright purple color and grapey nose, I tasted it last, well balanced, lots of fruit, was not disjointed, good acid on the finish with only a hint of wood, at four months in the barrel-this is the master blend for future release.

Top Tasters: rich deep purple, opaque, inky; ripe (but not jammy) blackberry, blackcherry cassis; cigar leaf, earthy minerals, well-integrated vanilla/oak/smoke; great structure with huge rugged tannins, coffee grounds notes. Could almost be a modern style Bordeaux; very good, classic, what CA Cab should be. Who needs "polished tannins" anyway?

Had a soft, purple color in the glass with a nice, cedary nose, I thought it soft, but not forward fruit on the palate, pleasant wood and soft tannins on the finish. Group #1, my second place.

Was my favorite with hints of coffee and blackberry fruit on the nose, lots of rich fruit in the mouth, elegant and powerful at the same time, ripe fruit and tannins on the long finish. Group #3.

Poured with a garnet coloring and a hint of bricking around the rim. The nose stayed muted during the evening, but the flavor profile include black cherry, cassis, pepper, and leather. The tannins left long ago and this bottle was beginning to show its age! Great cab with steaks however.

Cork broke upon opening but got it out with "corkpopper" (love those things). Nice ruby red color. Didn't decant and after about an hour fully opened up. A little lighter body than might have expected but still very nice. Seemed to be on the downside so might want to drink up.

Robust CS, strong cherry and red currant flavors, big profile, especially at this age. Some oak shows through, nice fruity acidity delineates the finish.

8/16/2014 - Vinnut Likes this wine: 91 points

From a 1.5L. Medium-deep garnet in color with slight clearing at the edges. Initially reticent, later developing with decanting and airing into a forward, attractive & complex nose of matured, ripe fruit aromas of cherries, berries & cassis with classic cigar box overtones of cedar & aged tobacco, dried herbs, some cocoa, dill, mint/eucalyptus, earthy, spices, minerals and toasty oak. Medium-full bodied with good concentration, smooth textured, elegant, complex, mature ripe fruit flavors of sour cherries, sweet raspberries & tart cranberries with herbs, spices, minerals, earthy and toasty oak. Lingering silky finish. Drinks quite well at present and appears to be at its peak of development and doubt any further development would occur from additional aging.

Ripe and sweet dark cherries and cassis in the bouquet, some smoke and beautiful oak. On the palate the same fruits, good acidity, a touch of bell pepper and even some garrugue. Beautiful tannin which is not tired yet. A beautifully mature and complex wine. Ready now, no hurry.

Mind blowing. What a treat. As with a previous note, our friends bought this wine at a charity auction about 10 years ago. The wine was stored perfectly from release until that point and for the past 10 years has been in a kitchen at 72 degrees on it's side. The cork was wet and crumbled so I expected the wine to be oxidized, but quite the opposite. The wine was phenomenal with a deep earthy nose, seamless palate with beautiful Napa fruit and almost a Bordeuax like flavor but bright like a Napa cab. Absolutely beautiful Napa cab. I have this wine which has been stored in perfect conditions and it has not tasted this good in the past. Haven't tasted one in several years, but will soon for comparison. I am very interested in the lack of deterioration of this wine stored at room temperature for 10 years. How important is keeping the wine temp at 55 degrees?

The color is clear and intense, nearly opaque, deep garnet color ruby to the edge with hints of magenta at the far edge. The smells are bright cherry, wet earth, raspberry, graphite, black olive, hoisin, sweet blueberry, and sweet spices. The tastes are sweet cherry, luscious blueberry and blackberry, exotic eastern spice, earth, and bright but elegant fruit. The finish is lengthy and the tannins are like satin and very fine. This is a beautiful and unique wine.

Read CT notes and double decanted with an 8 hour breathe, and the Mondavi responded nicely. I do think there is enough there to improve over time, but this is drinking well now, surely aided by the decant. Not a really big wine, more "modern" or perhaps more napafied in style, and surely worth it when considered along other napa high end wines which can cost one to five fold. Suspect in a blind tasting of napa high ends this will show fairly well, probably mid field.
