Two new releases from Napa’s iconic Robert Mondavi Vineyard have simply arrived. Let’s dive in.

2019 Robert Mondavi Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley – Initially on the inexperienced aspect, in actual fact a bit bitter, this wine by no means fairly develops past its roots as a grassy, lemon peel-driven expertise, culminating in a end that’s heavy on saline and minerals, however with none actual fruit to again up the acidity. The end feels doughy and fairly robust, chewy as an alternative of vibrant and refreshing. Wants a meal to counter its stunning depth and gravity. B / $35

2018 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon The Estates Oakville – One of the vital lovely cabernets I’ve seen in ages, completely ripe, showcasing currants, plums, cherries, and spice all in a mixture — half purple, half black fruit. Balanced deftly on the sting of the knife, the wine weaves its approach between fruit and florals, candy and bitter, earlier than ultimately touchdown on notes of semi-sweet chocolate, tea leaf, and a slight amaro be aware giving the end some pretty bitterness. A ravishing manufacturing coaxed out from an more and more blunt grape. A / $85 [BUY IT NOW FROM TOTAL WINE]
