Aaron: The robust smell of this cab featured chocolate and acai (much to my liking!)  The flavor was quite fruity with small berries and a slight sweetness.  Most important, I felt the tannins were perfectly balanced, creating a smooth but full flavor.  There was certainly some oak, but combined with the vanilla this was an easily drinkable wine.  93 points

Teri: Mondavi’s private selection cab has a rounded warm blueberry smell on the nose with a ‘back of the tongue’ bite but overall supple tannins. Flavors of blackberry, acai, bark, and mocha pair with long legs and a full flavor. This bottle would blend well with many meals. A great and cheaper choice to bring to a dinner party. 91 points
