Slightly earthy and leathery at first, the herb, currant and black cherry flavors slowly become more complex and interesting. Finish is firmly tannic, but the fruit pours through on the aftertaste.
The quality of the 1994 vintage is well-displayed at Robert Mondavi. The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (about 80,000 cases produced) is one of the finest regular Cabernets Mondavi has made. It exhibits a deep ruby color, and sweet, rich, blackcurrant aromas intertwined with scents of vanilla and spice. Soft, round, medium to full-bodied, and harmonious, the wine is accessible, yet capable of lasting for 10-15 years. Readers can look forward to an immensely impressive group of Cabernet Sauvignons from Mondavi, which is not surprising given what this estate has produced over the last several decades. 1994 is unquestionably a great vintage for North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon. As the opening comments in this article have stated, 1994 stands above 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993 - all outstanding vintages with no shortage of heroic performances. Remarkably, 1995 may turn out to be as profound as 1994, giving California its two greatest back to back vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon ... ever! (RP)
