Robert Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Central Coast, California - $9.99

Tasted this wine at Whole Foods yesterday where it retails for $9.99/bottle. My best guess is that it is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, and Sangiovese - the winery's website and downloaded tasting notes have conflicting information about the varietals and percentages included in the wine, but these seem to be a safe bet.

I tasted dark fruit, strong tannins, and dark cocoa. A good wine for the price if you like your Cabs very fruit forward with a cocoa finish.
