Elegant and stylish, with pretty currant and spice flavors. Still showing ample oak and tannin. (JL)
It had been a few years since I last tasted a bottle of the 1969 Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, and this most recent bottle was decidedly fresher and more vibrant than the last bottle I tasted back in 2009. The nose is deep and really lovely, wafting up from the glass in a complex mix of cherries, a touch of eucalyptus, woodsmoke, soil tones, fresh herbs, summer truffles and a lovely topnote of Napa valley spices redolent of cinnamon and allspice. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and still quite intensely flavored, with perfect resolution, no remaining tannins, but still excellent structural integrity on the long, velvety and quite elegant finish. Just a lovely bottle of fully mature Napa Cabernet.
