REVIEW: Robert Mondavi Solaire Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

April 27th, 2009 by Jeff

Price:

~$16

Nose:

Big cherry and plum aromas with a back-drop of vanilla.

Palate:

Full bodied, moderate acidity, fairly dry but with sweet, round tannic structure.  Dense flavors of blueberry and blackberry, currant and a bit of mint.  Touches of coffee and chocolate on the mid-palate.  Long, juicy, well balanced finished.

As good, moderately priced California Cabernets go up in price (hello Avalon), along comes a new Mondavi product that exceeds it’s price point by quite a bit.  This is destined to become a staple “glass pour” at steak houses around the country.  Pretty much everything one is looking for in an inexpensive California Cab.  Buy a case and roll through it over the next two years.  Terrific value!

The Som Rating: 8/10 Scarlett Johansson Heads
