Matt’s review:

This limited release Private Selection label Cabernet Sauvignon (2016 vintage) from iconic Californian winery, Robert Mondavi, is one you don’t want to miss, especially if you’re a big fan of California Cab and Kentucky Bourbon! Robert Mondavi winery crafted this 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown in Southern Monterey County and do they ever burst with notes of spicy dark berry compote, dark cherry, black currant, clove and sweet vanilla, each in great concentration. A portion of the wine spent an additional three months in new and used Kentucky Bourbon barrels which provides additional texture and flavour dimensions to what would have been an already very flavorful wine. A great wine to enjoy with rich autumn and winter meals, such as pasta dishes, stews, or classic BBQ fare. Available at LCBO Nov 12, 2017 – $20.95. Enjoy 2017-2021. Tasted October 2017. 90 points.
