Robert Mondavi Winery, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 1992

RRP £164

Robert Mondavi, the “Father of Napa”, is honoured as the first post-Prohibition winemaker determined to put American wines on the world stage. Tar and rose leaves on the nose here, exotic spice. Medium bodied (a “European” weight), cassis and minerality with some cedar. Dry at first but there’s great tannin structure with fine washed acidity bespeaking many years ahead. A slightly thin finish perhaps, but an elegant and classy wine.
