Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2000

Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml 2000       
Sku: 45841

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has deep, highly extracted color and dark fruit character of ripe black cherry and cassis. Violet, mineral and truffle nuances add complexity to the profound aromas, deep, rich flavors and lingering finish. Seventeen months of aging in willow-hoop, French oak château barrels added vanilla and toasty oak accents.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points
There are 18,000-20,000 cases of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, one of the finest efforts from this difficult vintage. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Malbec. It exhibits a deep purple color as well as an elegant, sweet perfume of black currants intertwined with licorice, loamy soil, and hints of mints as well as new oak. It is ripe, long, and structured, with medium to full body, outstanding purity and concentration, and a persistent finish. This elegant Cabernet will be at its finest between 2006-2020.

Wine maker notes
Our 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is made from our finest Napa Valley vineyards, with half the grapes selected from Robert Mondavi’s historic To Kalon Vineyard. The wine was fermented in a traditional oak tank, aged for 17 months in French oak château barrels and bottled without filtration.
