Robert Mondavi, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 1996

Drink now. Open and expressive, this Cab goes back to the days when the actual Mondavi family was still running things at Robert Mondavi Winery. Brick color gives way to a garnet rim. This is a dead-ringer for quality St. Julien with aromas of kirsch, tobacco and tomato leaf. Full but restrained with a dry finish.
