Community Tasting Notes 10

    December 26, 2022 - Blackberry and vanilla on the aroma. Similar taste profile. Medium-plus acidity and medium-plus tannins. Medium- plus body. Overall, its not super complex, but it is well balanced with a good tannin structure.

    November 21, 2022 - This is old school structured cab, that when opened smelled like a young Pauillac. It takes a minimum of five hours of air to show much of anything so not sure what some of the professional reviews are talking about. It builds in body over hours but never becomes opulent by any stretch like some prior vintages of Oakville Mondavi. I really like it and think it has a real chance for an upscoring, but this needs 5-7, or possibly even 10 years more of age and the quality certainly seems there. Pretty impressive stuff but definitely do not buy if you need to drink anything soon. Plenty of other Napa cabs are good for that such as Hess Collection. Will look forward to trying another bottle around 2030.

    November 17, 2022 - Mondavi smakk á Konsúlat hóteli (Konsúlat hótel, Hafnarstræti 17-19): Svipaður litur og á cab. sauv. víninu á undan. Miklu þyngri ilmur. Sætara í ilmi. Líka mikill ferskleiki og mynta í ilmi. Á tungunni: Eikaðra en fyrra cab. sauv. vínið. Tannín eru áberandi. Sýran var hins vegar ekki eins áberandi. Og þarna eru hrúgur af dökkum ávexti. Mjög frambærilegt vín. Talsvert skref upp á við frá grunn kabbanum.

    September 30, 2022 - Not bad, but nothing special. Some blueberry/blackberry flavors initially but a bit too young still

    August 2, 2022 - One of better Napa Cabs in resent time. Really nice fruit, fine acidity and a great finnish. This will come together as a beautiful wine if you wait 3 - 5 years!
