DescriptionM by Michael Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA 2006
ROBERT PARKERMore primary is the 2006 M (900 cases, again made from100% Cabernet Sauvignon). It avoids the rustic, somewhat astringent tannins that some Cabernets from Napa have in this vintage. This is a stronger effort in 2006 than was 2005. Dark, slightly more saturated, youthful plum/ruby/purple, with notes of licorice, scorched earth, and burning embers, the wine is structured, but displays terrific fruit intensity, medium to full body, and lots of upside potential. This is a young wine that I would cellar for 2-3 years and drink over the following 25 years.
WSA supple, graceful, harmonious mix of ripe notes of plum, cherry, and black and red licorice, with a hint of espresso,. Full-bodied, showing a silky edge to the tannins early on, yet firming nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 960 cases made.
