    December 24, 2014 - This performed pretty much as expected but, is not yet, transcendent. I think this could be really special in 3-5yrs. Still a little oak to integrate. Not over the top oak but, still out front a bit. My daughter praised the wine and she rarely remarks about them. Trying to introduce my adult kids to the magic of aged wines can be daunting in a holiday setting so that says something about how good this wine is. Right now, very elegant and showing generous depth and length on a focused frame. I decanted a good 3 hours earlier and poured back into the btl about 30 minutes before drinking. Definitely decant even though it smells great out of the shoot. The palate needs it. I'll try to secure more of these for down the road. 14.5 % Alc but didn't feel like it was over 13%. These Mondavi Reserve Cabs have rekindled my interest in certain CA Cabs.

    December 11, 2014 - I rated this wine 94+ points because of the price and product delivered. For $90 this is a great wine. Great nose of dark berries, dark chocolate, and cherry liquor. Legs are med. No noticeable heat or alcohol. Excellent mouth feel, smooth, bright edges, tannins fully integrated, a pleasure to drink, and a true pleasure at $90 a bottle. Although we drink a lot of the 2000 vintage and in every tasting the 2000 is picked every time over the 2001. even thought he 2001 is rated higher I believe the 2000 has aged better.

    December 11, 2014 - 93+ 3 hour decant.Seductive, mature, smooth. Notes of blackcurrant some graphite, stone and with more time whaffs of plush Blackcherry. Mid palate sweet core of black/red fruits, solid but subtle structure. Great balance, aging gracefully. Drink or a hold.
