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
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.
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.
