Tasting Notes

WA92

As for the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, this wine seems more subdued than it did last year and might be going through a relatively closed stage.

The Winery

Robert Mondavi

With a vision to create world famous wines in the heart of Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi began his quest in 1966 by choosing the To Kalon Vineyard as his first endeavor. He wanted to pioneer a renaissance in the Napa Valley with his passionate and meticulous approach to eventually compete with the wines of Bordeaux. Residing in Oakville, Mondavi wines have continued to carry the torch as a true Cabernet Sauvignon based estate garnering consistently high scores from world renowned critics.

Robert partnered with Baron Philippe Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild in 1979 to create a Bordeaux-style blend in Napa Valley. The goal was create an exquisite and beautiful wine at first-growth quality from the fertile soils of Oakville. Opus One made the leap becoming one of the most sought after reds in the New World by consistently meeting wine lovers ever-growing expectations of quality.
