Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine*Two Stars* Exhibiting both stuffing and style with plenty of rich oak in league with its deep and well-sustained ripe currant fruit, Mondavi's Oakville bottling is a fleshy, full-bodied Cabernet that stays deftly away from outsized astringency and, while certainly built to age nicely, it shows an unmistakable sense of winemaking polish and crafting. That is not to say that it begs short-term drinking, and it is, in fact, some years away from reaching its considerable best. Manners aside, it deserves a half-decade of patience and will age gracefully for at least twice that time.
