M by Michael Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||M by Michael Mondavi|
Rated 95 by James Suckling Although this is very ripe and deep and there is a hint of bitter chocolate, the fresh plum and blackberry character reigns supreme in the nose. Rich and concentrated, but with full, plush tannins that carry this extravagance beautifully. It gently builds to a long and discreetly dry finish with plenty of chocolate and some mineral notes. A blend of 58 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 30 per cent cabernet franc, five per cent merlot, five per cent petit verdot and two per cent malbec. Drink or hold.
