Spellbound Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, a 15,000-case cuvée of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, is aged in French oak. The Mondavi DNA shines through brilliantly in this dense ruby/purple-colored Cabernet. It boasts plenty of blackcurrant fruit, licorice, baking spices and a subtle hint of oak in the background. With silky tannin, medium body and excellent concentration as well as length, this beauty can be drunk over the next 5-6 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis Cab is pretty good for the price. It's ripe and fruity, with a full body and rich but soft tannins. Turns a bit treacly on the finish, with a dulcet, honeyed richness.
