Maestro 2104, Robert Mondavi

The 2014 Maestro from Robert Mondavi looks like a gift from a rich uncle. Encased in a classy presentation box, the Maestro bottle within glimmers with gold leaf. If you’re looking for a smart looking gift (and a great bottle of wine) the Maestro fits the bill. Imagine taking this as a host/hostess gift. Looks like a million bucks, tastes like a million bucks (but it’s fifty dollars.)

First introduced in 2016 for Mondavi’s 50th anniversary, Maestro is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvigon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot–fruit sourced from Stags Leap District and Oakville.This second vintage is another big boy at 15%abv. Lots of dark fruit, cocoa, and velvet tannins. As rich as it is now, cellaring the Maestro should provide its own rewards. 50.00
