Robert Mondavi Napa 'Oakville' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
The 2008 vintage began with above normal rainfall but then was followed by one of the driest springs on record. April frosts threatened but vigilant vineyard managers protected the crop from severe damage. Dry winds during bloom and berry set reduced yields and then, finally, Mother Nature looked kindly on our vines and provided an excellent ripening season. Because of the lighter crop, harvest came a bit early with the last Cabernet Sauvignon grapes ripening in mid-October.
