Mondavi, Robert Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1987
great structure but lacks in personality

second bottle in the last 12 months. Tonight the bottle was in great shape with fill well into the neck. Dark core with a tad of lightening to the edge. Powerful mature nose dominated by spice, dirt, tobacoo leaves, a hint of leather, all with a slight green charector but really lacking focus. There is a sweet hint of candied( in a good way) red fruit. But lacking a backbone.  The nose is pungent but not seductive. in the mouth the wine is soft, smooth, and seemless. This is were I assume it gets its high scores. The finish is very spicy and lasts for about 30 seconds. If you got em drink em. 91 points. Lacking in charm and that wow factor but possesing finesse.
