Winemaker Peter Mondavi Notes
Our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon is supple and harmonious Aromas of dark chocolate, orange peel and roasted chestnuts combine with wild berries, coffee and peanut brittle flavors. The 2007 season began dry, about 60% of normal precipitation with some very cold days and single-digit night time temperatures around the New Year holiday. Temperatures were warmer than normal as winter continued into spring with resulting earlier budding, bloom and set in the vineyards across all varieties. The summer months remained cool, with few days topping 100degrees except for a brief heat spike around Labor Day. Clusters, as well as individual berries, were notably smaller in all varieties due to the dry season.
