MICHAEL MONDAVI’S PINNACLE NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Stylistically, M is reminiscent of the Cabernets that Michael made for Robert Mondavi Winery when he was winemaker there in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. It is a structured, refined wine intended to be enjoyed with a meal and capable of developing over a decade or two.
The grapes for M are culled from selected blocks of the family’s Animo vineyard on Atlas Peak, hand-sorted and vinified in small batches, then carefully blended and matured in French oak. Approximately one dozen barrels of the finest wine produced from the estate are selected for M from any given vintage.
