A Virile Eruption – ’97 Robert Mondavi

Let me embroider my name on your back. No, I mean with your shirt off.  A magnum of Robert Mondavi Winery, 1997 Cabernet 8656Sauvignon throbs with ribbed sexiness, black current and rich licorice.  Pure brawn and smokiness shows imposing tannins and poised acid. It erupts in a polished blend of spice, plum and charcoal as it suspends its peppery, violet finish  – a trick, which only comes with age, and yet, it’s as virile as a young buck at a Playboy shoot.  A bigger bottle is better – more to taste….  Enjoy!  I certainly did.
