Robert Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
James SucklingA cabernet with form, freshness and tension. Full body, tight and refined tannins and a black currant, blackberry and light chocolate aftertaste. Drink in 2018.
VinousThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is another succulent, expressive wine that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Mocha, plums, espresso, dark spices and menthol all meld together. This is an unusually open, juicy 2013 with plenty of flesh and near term appeal.
Wine SpectatorTightly wound, with a muscular mix of lead pencil and graphite accenting the core of dense berry, earth, gravel and cedary oak notes. Slowly reveals black licorice, anise and savory herb flavors, but needs cellaring time. Best from 2019 through 2030.
Wine AdvocateAn easygoing, attractive 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville with a deep ruby/purple color, nice cedary wood notes, supple tannins and nice blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. Not terribly complex, but savory and delicious, it is best drunk over the next 10-15 years.
