When Robert Mondavi founded the iconic Robert Mondavi Winery in 1966, his vision was to create Napa Valley wines that would compete with the world's best wines. With a firm conviction that great wines are the result of soil, climate, vineyard management, and winemaking philosophy, the winery continues to pursue Robert Mondavi's goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with technology and programs that break barriers and open new frontiers. Today, Genevieve Janssens leads the winemaking team and has had a long standing relationship with Mondavi's Napa Valley vineyards and estate vineyard at To Kalon since 1978. Most recently she was selected as Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Wine Spectator "Tightly wound, with a muscular mix of lead pencil and graphite accenting the core of dense berry, earth, gravel and cedary oak notes. Slowly reveals black licorice, anise and savory herb flavors, but needs cellaring time. Best from 2019 through 2030."
Vinous The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is another succulent, expressive wine that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Mocha, plums, espresso, dark spices and menthol all meld together. This is an unusually open, juicy 2013 with plenty of flesh and near term appeal.
