1996. Vin mature et très en forme. Encore plusieurs années devant lui!

How awesome are these older Mondavi reserves? If you haven’t had one of these wines and you enjoy Cali wines, this is historical evidence of a time long ago. No fruit bomb here. In fact, I imagine the fruit was still well balanced in the beginning to interact easily with the cocoa, menthol and clay/amphora notes.

Amazing for ‘96 felt like it could still age. Stored Properly

Was hoping for more. Tasted like perhaps it had been overcropped. Lacked depth and concentration.

Surprised how well this was drinking considering it's age. It can probably still go a few more years. There's nothing like an old school Mondavi.
