- WINE ENTHUSIAST, Virginie Boone: "Made from four Bordeaux red varieties, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this full-bodied wine is chalky in big-boned tannin and woody oak. Green olive, sagebrush and graphite accent blackberry and black cherry, with a rounded finish."
- WINESPECTATOR, James Laube: "Aromas of dark berry, herb and cedar are raw and gritty on the palate, young and intense meaning it's best to cellar short term in the hopes of a smoother texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2018 through 2028. 30,000 cases made."
|Reben:||73 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 23 % Cabernet Franc, 2 % Merlot, 2 % Petit Verdot|
|Im Weinberg:||While Maestro is inspired by Bordeaux blends, at heart, it’s a free spirit. Rather than a set style, we take our cues each vintage from the vineyards themselves. 2014 was a fantastic season for Cabernet Sauvignon in our prized Wappo Hill and To Kalon vineyards, which led to the inspiration behind this blend. Our 2014 Maestro is designed to capture the refined balance between these two estate vineyards. Part of the Stags Leap growing region, Wappo Hill is a special site offering delicious consistency, and bringing freshness and softness to the wine. Fruit from Oakville’s long-revered To Kalon vineyard, considered Napa Valley’s grand cru, adds structure and bold tannins to the final wine.|
|Im Weinkeller:||The grapes were hand-harvested into small bins and carefully sorted in our gravity-flow cellar. The clusters were gently destemmed directly into traditional French oak tanks for cold soak, fermentation and extended maceration – a total of 24 days of wine to skin contact – maximizing the extraction of varietal character and complexity while keeping the tannins fleshy and supple. The new wine was drained and gently pressed into 28% new French-oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, assuring seamless integration of fruit and oak. The final blend was assembled through repeated tasting trials over the 21 months of barrel aging.|

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Highly inspired by the response to our limited-release 50th Anniversary Maestro, we once again let artistic direction in the vineyard lead us to a unique blend in this second rendition of Maestro, where a crescendo of dark, juicy plum and cassis fruit, violet, cinnamon, and unsweetened cocoa linger on sumptuous sips full of vibrant flavor and plush tannins. Maestro is a serious wine with a humble soul. It celebrates both Robert Mondavi’s work and his wisdom. Genevieve Janssens - Director of Winemaking|
