Robert Mondavi Winery Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

Absolutely stunning. Robert Mondavi was quoted as saying he felt the ‘87 Reserve was the best wine he ever made...and I can see why. The balance, flavor, mouthfeel...just everything about this wine screams elegance. I would still place the 1994 Harlan as the best cabernet-based wine that I’ve ever had...but this is a close second. This is the last of a baker’s dozen case of 1987 Mondavi that I bought when I started my academic career at UC-Berkeley. With my amazing wife just getting promoted to Full Professor...can’t imagine a better occasion to enjoy this last bottle.
