TN: 2004 Mondavi Cabernet Napa

This is a real dark cabernet, Nice casis and cocoa on the nose. The palate reveals super smooth sweet tannins, and medium dark fruits. A beautiful aftertaste finishes off nicely.

A very nice Mondavi that has me on the fence . Although better than the '03, I am not a big fan of the sweet tannins style. This wine also seems to be at best, a 3-4 year wine. I can see this falling off the cliff in a few years. Although not my style, it's gonna get a 88 from me. It has a good beat, and you can dance to it....For the same price Ehlers Estate Cab BLOWS it away.
