Lot #926. Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 1977

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93 JG.
"The bouquet is deep, strikingly beautiful and absolutely à point, as it jumps from the glass in a classy mélange of sweet cherries, menthol, eucalyptus, cigar smoke, really lovely, Napa soil tones, a bit of new oak and a topnote of petroleum jelly that one often finds also in old Sterling cabernets from the Ric Forman era. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fully resolved, with really lovely elegance, fine mid-palate depth, superb complexity and a very long, velvety finish. A really terrific bottle of wine with decades of life still in it." View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2010, Issue #29
Provenance: The Maestro Cellar
Notes: 1 slightly recessed cork, lightly scuffed capsules, nicked and lightly scuffed labels, 1 very lightly wine stained label.
