The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive. The 2007 should evolve for 20-25 years. (RP) 95+
Bone dry and utterly balanced, with deeply powerful, long-lasting flavors of blackberries and black currants and an intense, but integrated, coating of smoky oak. But it’s also very tannic. Nothing soft about this wine. As fine a cellar candidate as any Mondavi Reserve in years. Should develop for 12, 15, even 20 years. *Best of 2010, Cellar Selection*
Bright medium ruby. Inky blueberry and dark chocolate aromas are slightly porty and liqueur-like but not roasted or oxidative. Plush, thick, powerful and pure, showing uncommon breadth to the flavors of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Finishes with substantial sweet tannins and outstanding slowly mounting length. This wine is getting better and better. This bottle was less closed than the sample I tried at my vertical tasting last spring but is nonetheless a bit extreme and unrefined for this flagship Mondavi bottling. It's going to last a very long time, though. (ST) 93+
Blackberry jam on the nose, with hints of vanilla and licorice. Full and jammy, with a slightly hollow center palate, but I enjoy the velvety texture.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is deep, plush and voluptuous. Although the first signs of tertiary maturity are starting to set in, the 2007 has enough depth to drink well for another decade or so. (AG)
There's much to admire here and plenty to chew on, with the core serving up a mix of mocha-laced currant, raspberry, anise and cedar flavors. The substantial tannins are rich and present, but this has room to grow. (JL, Web Only-2017)
Aromatics and palate of cassis and blackberry, dried and savoury herbs, garrigue and black olive with coffee through the finish. Powerful, rich, and ripe with lots of density throughout the palate. The focus here is on textural pleasure and filling the mouth with flavour. A starkly different mouthfeel and character than any of the pre-2000 vintages. While this is an ample wine it does carry the alcohol surprisingly well. (ECB)
