The silky texture and fruit complexity of Oakville are all here with dark blackberry and toasty, sweet oak spices mingling with dried herbs and clove complexity. True to the vintage, this wine's rich ripeness shows the warmth of the growing season, balanced by a refreshing lift of acidity as its flows across the palate.

Rich and seductive in feel, with a lovely swath of loamy-edged steeped plum and blackberry compote flavours, backed with flashes of anise and sweet bay leaf. A loamy edge extends nicely in lockstep with the fruit on the finish. Textbook Oakville Cabernet. Best from 2022 through 2034.

The 2018 Robert Mondavi Estates Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is concentrated, long, and impressive. This wine delivers aromas and flavors of bold black fruit and accents of oak. Enjoy it with a grilled ribeye.
