The Cabernet Sauvignon for Animo is grown outside the vineyard's Crown Block at slightly lower elevations, and is an approachable wine in its youth. Deep and luscious, Animo is a modern, fruit-driven Cabernet which retains a genuine, built-to-last mountain character. Made with 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot.

Seeking vineyards that would form the foundation of his family estate, Michael Mondavi zeroed-in on a particularly rugged, Manzanita-dotted parcel high on Atlas Peak in the Vaca Mountain range of southeastern Napa Valley. As Michael surveyed the site with his family, his daughter Dina remarked, "Dad, this place has animo." Animo is an Italian word for heart or spirit. In the family’s experience, some vineyards have it, and some don’t - a pervading spirit that presents the opportunity of producing something that is truly exceptional. An experienced vintner recognizes the dormant energy of such a site before it has even been planted, its potential evident in the raw material, from the soil to the curvature of the land and sun exposures.
