Lot #639. Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1974

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 JG.
"It had been four years since I last crossed paths with a bottle of 1974 Mondavi Cabernet, and the wine continues to drink just beautifully. The nose is deep, impressively complex and quite lovely in its aromatic mélange of black cherries, cassis, a touch of petroleum jelly, Rutherford dust, chipotle peppers, fresh herb tones, cigar smoke and soil nuances. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and quite light on its feet, with fine complexity of flavor, just a touch of remaining tannins, good acids and a very long, complex and classy finish. One of my favorite vintages for the 'regular' bottling of Cabernet at Robert Mondavi." View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2012, Issue #41
Notes: Very top shoulder, bin soiled, heavily scuffed, and nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $190
