    July 25, 2018 - Drinking pretty nice. Probably could go another few years to let the tannins mellow; the fruit is there to last.

    November 28, 2017 - Man this is still so rich and structured, surprising for a sub $20 Napa Cab of this stature and age. Loaded with blackberry, current leaf, cedar, sweet tannins, and adequate acidity. Still have a couple bottles so I'm thinking at least five years until the next one.

    February 24, 2017 - Questionable storage -- may have been heat-exposed. Allowed to breathe in glass 4 hours before tasting, with sampling every hour. Clear deep garnet color. Initially this wine had a pungent, unpleasant bouquet of shoe polish and stewed vegetables and fruit. But after four hours of vigorous aeration (placing the glass of wine next to a window fan) most of the unpleasant volatile aromas dissipated, leaving a tolerable residual bouquet of faded creme de cassis, licorice, and forest floor, with no primary fruit discernible. Similar on the palate, medium-full body, drinkable with food.

    November 24, 2016 - From Magnum. Had this with our Thanksgiving rib roast and it showed surprisingly well. Still looks quite youthful and drinks very nicely in this format. Very pretty and expressive on the nose. Powerful aromas of leather, spice, earth and crushed dark fruits fill the glass. Medium-to-full-bodied. Plenty of delicious cherry, plum and raspberry fruit remains. Quite elegant in style and weight, yet displays very good depth and intensity on the mid-palate. Smooth and polished on the finish, where silky tannins and notes of earth and leather leave a pleasant, lasting impression. A very nice Mondavi Napa Cabernet that has aged beautifully.

    June 24, 2016 - This was enjoyable upon first pour but it was better after being opened a few hours. The fruit is fading but there is still some berry flavors to go along with the leather and earth aromas and flavors. Drink soon.
