95+ Points, Wine Advocate - The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive.
95 Points, Wine Spectator - A wonderful expression of stylish Cabernet that's ripe, fleshy, complex and layered, highlighting ripe currant, wild berry and blueberry, with touches of cedar and cigar box. The flavors gain traction on the finish.
95 Points, Wine Enthusiast - Bone dry and utterly balanced, with deeply powerful, long-lasting flavors of blackberries and black currants and an intense, but integrated, coating of smoky oak. But it's also very tannic. Nothing soft about this wine. As fine a cellar candidate as any Mondavi Reserve in years.
94 Points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - Deep, bright ruby. Very ripe, nuanced nose and palate offer cassis, minerals, graphite and licorice, plus a complicating note of tarry oak. Sweet, dense and rich, with classic Oakville cabernet flavors; strongly mineral- and soil-driven. Offers a lovely combination of fat, chewiness and sheer power. Finish with a mouthful of sweet tannins and excellent structure.
Full, classic aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, and cedarwood with layers of spice, camphor and roasted herbs. On the palate, expressions of the To Kalon Vineyard terroir manifest in ripe mineral-laced blue and black fruits wrapped in firm, velvety tannins and followed by an exceedingly long, aristocratic finish.
