DescriptionRobert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1993
"The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve outperformed the 1992 at the winery, revealing a concentrated, splendidly saturated dark purple color, wonderfully sweet, intense aromas of chocolate, smoke, vanilla beans, and rich blackcurrant fruit. The wine tastes more extracted than the 1992, with a sweeter, more expansive, glycerin-imbued mid-section and finish. Although it carries as much tannin as the 1992, the tannin is riper as well as better integrated. The 1993 is a 25-30 years wine that ideally needs another 4-5 years of cellaring. All things considered, there is plenty to be excited about at the Robert Mondavi winery." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #102, Dec. 1995)
"Sleek, elegant and long on finesse, with a mature, supple tapestry of currant, plum and dried berry fruit. The chewy tannins firm up and give backbone to the finish." (90 pts. JL, Wine Spectator, Nov. 2003)
Estimate: $55 - $75.
