"The value-priced 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is well worth seeking out and is ideal for readers who feel all the wines in Napa are over-priced. This sexy, rounded effort sports a deep, inky color as well as upfront cassis and jammy blackberry fruits, medium body, sweet tannins, and terrific overall balance. " (1/2019)

Vinous 90
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a gorgeous wine. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and licorice flesh out in a supple, easygoing Cabernet that will drink well out of the gate. The sumptuous, crowd-pleasing style is sure to find a wide and hugely appreciative audience. Moreover, it is a tremendous value. Dark cherry, spice and pretty floral notes accent the succulent, racy finish. There is so much to like. Mondavi's Napa Valley Cabernet draws from a wide range of sources across the appellation. (AG) " (12/2018)

Wine Spectator 90
"A direct, focused style, with a core of steeped cherry and plum preserve flavors, liberally lined with toasted vanilla and licorice notes. Sports a pleasant tug of earth at the end of the juicy finish. Textbook Cabernet. Drink now through 2026. (JM) " (3/2019)

“The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers mouth filling, deeply intense blackberry fruit across the palate with clove and cardamom spice complexity and dusty tannins that add structure to the juicy fullness of the fruit.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc”-Winemaker’s Notes

“Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world's finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.
Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards, including Stag's Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay).
Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.
The Robert Mondavi winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on their founder's mandate to always strive higher, to pursue Robert Mondavi's goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.
Leading this initiative is Geneviève Janssens, Director of Winemaking. Geneviève, whose relationship with the winery began in 1978, was selected Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast in 2010.”-Winery Notes
