M by Michael Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The elegance of M Cabernet Sauvignon, is inspired by both the reds of Bordeaux and the legendary Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernets of the 1960’s and early 19070’s that Michael made himself. With inspiration of balance and elegance from the past combined with modern hand shows through via the ripe dark fruits and approachable generosity of the wine.
Four generations of passion and experience have come together to create the winery and the wines. It started in 1919 when Michael Mondavi's grandfather, Cesare, was elected to find grapes and winemaking supplies for families to make wine legally during Prohibition. Thus, the Mondavi family began their foray into California winemaking. Michael Mondavi Family Estate embodies Michael's vision of a great, single vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, crafted from 100% estate grown fruit from high atop Atlas Peak on 15 acres of rocky, volcanic soil.
