Robert Mondavi Maestro Red 2017 750ML
Robert Mondavi Maestro 2017
Bordeaux Red Blends from Napa Valley, California
A joyful celebration of all five Bordeaux varietals. Lush black plum, cassis, and cherry aromas intermingle with earthy cinnamon, nutmeg, and cedar with just a touch of vanilla. Round and full, its lovely fruit lasts all the way through to a long finish. The wine has the classic, soulful To Kalon Vineyard structure at its core.
Blend: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec
95 Points/James Suckling
This is dense and layered with a beautiful and poised combination of tannin and fruit. Full-bodied and reserved with blueberry, currant and light plum. Some chocolate undertones, too. Needs a couple of years to come completely together. 55% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 5% cabernet franc and 2% malbec. Drink after 2022 and onwards.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Robert Mondavi Winery Maestro Red deftly blends Bordeaux grape varieties into a lovely, cohesive wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits an alluring aroma and tight-knit flavors of dried herbs, cinnamon, and mineral. Enjoy it with oven-baked short ribs. (Tasted: February 15, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
