Core garnet color, little sign of bricking. Must nose of dusted dark cherry, herbs, anise..Bdx like nose. Smooth palate, showing dark berries, cigar, leather, savory notes, roasted meats, mushroom and cola...Elegant and nicely aged
Group liked this one much better than the 1990. Exquisite wine, nicely aged, well preserved and expressive. Should continue to drink well for next several years...no reason to wait (IMO)
I love these older wines. Low in alcohol, soft, smooth and so easy to drink. Quite powerful still. Rich and full. Coats your palate. A good amount of complexity as there is a lot going on still with this old wine. Tobacco, cigar, wet leather, cola, wet cedar, smoked meats, and charcoal. Typical musty and dusty nose. This needs about 30 minutes and its ready.
Wine Spectator: Strikingly complex and very complete, with a mix of richness and vibrancy. Tight in structure, purity and density, centered around blackberry, currant, anise, cedar and cigar box flavors.—Robert Mondavi vertical (December 2015). Drink now. 17,000 cases made.
