M BY MICHAEL MONDAVI
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2018
You might not have tasted the legendary Cabernet Sauvignons that Robert Mondavi was putting out in the '60s and '70s, but undoubtedly you've heard of them. We've all heard of them. These were benchmark wines — brilliant, statement-making wines that set a new standard for an emerging Napa Valley and put it firmly and forever on the world stage.
All the signatures that made the family famous are here, and in vivid array: the concentration, the balance, the structure that promises long, graceful aging.
The excellence of its craftsmanship moved James Suckling to pen this mouth-watering, 97-point rave: "dusty and pretty tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Juicy center palate. Flavorful, yet dialed-in at the end. Slightly austere, focused finish."
All Mondavi wines have good bones. This one was made with grapes sourced from the famed Animo Vineyard, high atop Atlas Peak in the Napa Valley — a single vineyard of enviably rocky, volcanic soil.
But as we all know, bones alone do not a great wine make. The M line is also blessed to have the knowledge, experience, and insight that have been handed down through more than six decades, from Robert to Michael and now to Rob Jr., who, in conjunction with Sabrina Massola, today carries on the proud tradition.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, the 2018 M is for us, above all, a wine of almost majestic poise.
Which could also describe the winery itself, an operation that beautifully balances past and present — drawing from the enduring truths of ancient methods, while also embracing the future, in the form of new technologies, new methods.
We're proud to be able to bring this bottle to you, and hope that you're just as thrilled as we are by this gorgeous expression of terroir and timelessness ... of Napa as Napa should be.
Our allocation is not large, however, so hurry to lock in your order today!
